Ideologies (Le pathétique) (2000–2006)

I’ve always felt a special warmth in my heart, or a searing or scarring, a love, for the abject. I have a kind of love for the neglected, the sickly trace of a human intention, the edges of the adjacent other, the drawings of an often quiet collision of nature and order, or of orders, and see in each of these moments its own ideology.

Ideologies III (Pathetic Pictures) (2012–2014)

Sontag wrote “Most subjects photographed are, just by virtue of being photographed, touched with pathos.”

And (I would write) some subjects are, by virtue of being photographed or pathetic, comical.

* * *

The unexpected appearance of a toothy sigh in a fish tank, of a plastic bag flailing in defeat like a banner against nature, of an uneasy correspondence of red shoes which belong to nothing nor to each other—of traces of intentionality not themselves intentional—I find humor in these mute signs which nonetheless seem at times to call me.
