Zwischenwelt is a photographic work that delves into the strange unsettling qualities of the undergrowth of the nuclear exclusion zone of chernobyl. Through the use of analogue photography and a process involving the irradiation of paper with radioactive ore, the artist captures the hidden secrets and potential dangers of this place. The carefully arranged ore leaves its mark on the paper, blackening it at the spots where it was placed. The composition of the work creates a sense of mystery inviting the viewer to consider the otherworldly and potentially hazardous aspects of the landscape. The work delves into the unknown, evoking a sense of the supernatural and the ethereal.
