LETTING GO / LOSLASSEN

[Eng]

It feels good to let go – to lose control over what happens to one’s image. It takes some time, same as with cutting into images, adapting them, treating them in some way. But once you start it feels good to let go of the idea of the preciousness of one’s composition, of being in complete control of what happens to this work. It feels good to let go – to hand over control to the space and whatever happens there, to hand over control to the adhesive used, to the weather, the wall, the passersby, to serendipity. It feels good to hand over control and watch.

Deixar ir

Sabe bem deixar ir – perder o controlo sobre o que acontece às nossas imagens. Demora algum tempo, o mesmo que cortar imagens, adaptá-las, tratá-las de alguma forma. Mas assim que se começa, sabe bem esquecer a ideia de como é preciosa a nossa composição fotográfica, o controlarmos totalmente o que acontece neste trabalho. Sabe bem deixar ir – entregar o controlo ao espaço e a tudo o que possa acontecer aí, o entregarmos o controlo ao adesivo usado, ao tempo, à parede, aos transeuntes, à casualidade. Sabe bem entregar o controlo e observar.

[AUT]

Es ist ein gutes Gefuehl loszulassen – die Kontrolle ueber sein Bild abzugeben. Es dauert ein Weilchen, genau gleich wie Bilder zu zerschneiden oder mit verschiedenen Methoden zu veraendern. Aber wenn man mal angefangen hat ist es ein gutes Gefuehl loszulassen, die Kostbarkeit seiner eigenen Komposition zu vernichten, die absolute Kontrolle abzugeben. Es ist ein gutes Gefuehl loszulassen – Kontrolle dem Ort und was dort passiert zu uebergeben, dem Kleber, them Wetter, der Mauer, dem Passanten, dem Zufall zu uebergeben. Es ist ein gutes Gefuehl loszulassen und zu beobachten.
