“For while the object is a resistant material body, it is also, simultaneously, a mental realm over which i hold sway, a thing whose meaning is governed by myself alone. It is all my own, the object of my passion.”
– Jean Baudrillard, The System of Collecting.
‘Collections’ is a series of framed portraits of intimate spaces, displaying the private world of collections as the extended self. It is this unconventional form of portraiture where the sitter is absent; and these artefacts of one’s passion comes into the spotlight as being intrinsic to their identity.
