ProfiLab TIFF Open

White Trash / People’s Choice Award

artist: Rebekka Deubner | curator: Małgorzata Wojciechowicz

Visual poetry about objects taking shape and disappearing
at the same time. For me photography has a form of a set,
neverending collection of appealing items, bodies and moments:
by photographing them, I make them mine.

The image of a given subject exists because of me, belongs to me, in contrast to the objects themselves. I am trying to save them from empty ages and minds in that manner. I have been doing that since childhood, when writing in a diary meant also collecting rocks, dried flowers, enabling me to save objects through extracting them from everyday life and context. That is how a small, metaphorical, yet tangible universe was created. Through taking and collecting photos I build fragmentary, ephemeral and evolving stories of disappearing experience. The image becomes a vessel for memories, creating a potential answer to disappearance.
