disturbed soil

DE | FR | EN

"Disturbed Soil" is an ongoing project focused on war, memory, and the transmission of trauma, particularly related to the conflict in former Yugoslavia, specifically Bosnia and Herzegovina. The term "Disturbed Soil" refers to changes in earth surfaces, as noted by the military through satellite imagery, helping identify locations of significant events, such as mass graves from the Srebrenica massacre. 

The artist conducted extensive research and took photographs during several trips to Bosnia, capturing associative images in places with historical connections to the war. The shown abstracted photographs raise questions about the objectivity of photographic positions and the challenge of representing a subject truthfully when personal reference is limited. The project also explores the necessity of objective truth in photography when dealing with events that may defy complete photographic capture.
