Heterotopia

2014, in progress

Series of photographs which purpose is to „undo the identity“ by gathering the layers of surface (multiex- posure). I try find relations between in everyday life at some specific places which are defined by Michael Foucault as Heterotopia. These are spaces of otherness, which are simultaneously physical and mental (such as the space of a phone call or the moment when you see yourself in the mirror). „We are at a moment. The present epoch is an epoch of space, of simultaneity, epoch of juxtaposition, the epoch of near and far, of the side by side, of the dispe- resed. The space in which we live, which draws us out of ourselves, in which the erosion of our lives, our time and our history occurs, the space that claws and gnaws at us, is also, in itself, a heterogeneous space“ M.Foucault
