Ann-Sophie Deproost

Light. Transparancy. Slowness. Space. Reflection. Silence. Being. Paradox. Seeing. Obscure. Dimensions of time. Temporary. Experience. The grid. Density. Out of Focus. Haze. The everyday. Possibility. Existence. Void. Noise. Dark. Dusk.

The images of Ann-Sophie Deproost observe an awareness, a ‘daily-ness’. Being in time and space. ‘Being’, in which a human is constantly in relation to surrounding objects, its own subject and reality. Where does reality starts, where does she cracks and where does reality misleads us by showing only a reflection of reality? The act of walking brings the mind to a state of reflection.

Walking represents 'to spend time' in the present and to become aware of the outer world. The camera is used as a way to perceive. To capture moments in which the outer world and inner thinking meet each other.

The images of Ann-Sophie Deproost do not only reflect on the daily but also focusses on the metalevel of the images themselves. Manipulation and reproduction in the darkroom and searching for the boundaries of both the analog and digital photography imagines a border area with other media such as drawing and film.

Animals burrow holes, people dig pits. Animals hide in the holes, people despise norms and fall into their pits. Animals get outside, into familiar world.

The paint is falling off the walls; the old epochal cars are disassembled, and disoriented dogs are walking like ghosts through the dirty snow.

On the 14th of November 2015 Saturday came unfortunately on the day after the terrorist atrocity in Paris where I was within 200 metres of the worst events.
