The images of my research ‘The Faceless Legs’ are never finished or complete or quite right, but I get the sense of what it could become or how it could be.
I see an image in my mind, I see it, and yet I hardly ever carry it out as I see it. The image reconstructs itself by the process. Where another stops, I go 10 steps further.
Perhaps one could say it’s not an accident, because it becomes a careful process in which part of this accident one chooses to protect. Is that an accident?
Depending on the perspective of the viewer the subject of a picture is static. In my case it is different. I montage my images in a way that makes it interesting to look at for longer. There may be a chance that another pair of eyes see something very different than mine. My image has reconstructed through the entire process, and is still reconstructing itself in the eyes ofthe viewer.
That means my images are never finished or complete or quite right, but you get the sense of what it could become or how it could be.
Those are The Faceless Legs.
Born in Finland and a young visual artist trying to find her way in a turbulent world. Katariina Kärki (Helsinki, FI, 2000) has always had a great fascination for modern art and photography. More specifically for the process, not necessarily for the end result. Her research ‘The Faceless Legs’ is an homage to the process of all things. “I have fallen even more in love with the time I put in my work than the end result. Embracing the process puts me in a whole other mindset.”
