'Mapping artifacts: unidentified evidence' (2021) is a process in which I investigate my close surroundings, based on a collection of objects found within this surrounding area. Repeated acts of collecting, arranging and documenting lead an investigation into establishing an event, one of which I only find the fragmented remains of.
Incidental artefacts and lost fragments form an image of human actions. They are in a phase of rejection, neglect and destruction, I interrupt this phase by removing the artifacts from their context. The contrast between the original site, the artefact itself and its strictly framed representation is emphasized. This representation serves as a 'reconstruction' of an event that has taken place. That same 'reconstruction', which is a collection of interventions, is again an event itself.
