The photographic series Performing Grounds shows accidental and random traces of human actions found in public and private spaces, architectures and places that once were alive and now are silent.
The echo of the actions persists in future moments and the space alteration becomes the documentation of human performance, the photography being in turn a document of the document, a dimming reverberation of a time that will never return. One of the strongest fates of human condition, the expiring of existence, is made evident through the landscapes, as they would be “leftovers”; residues imbued with the melancholy of the accidental.
The Performing Grounds were taken between 2007 and 2018 in: Germany, Finland, Scotland, Spain, France, Romania, Bulgaria, Georgia, Canada, Jordan, Syria, Japan, Taiwan, Morocco, China and Cameroon.
In 2017 Trema Förlag in Sweden published a 72 pages hard cover book about the project. The book was nominated for the Unveil’d photobook award.
