I had a head operation

I had a head operation, 2016
“I had a head operation” is a photo-essay about the feeling of speechlessness, the loss of words. A sympton that can occur after a head operation, is the absence and missing of words. Here the sympton becomes a metaphor for those moments, when speech gets to its limit of what one whishes to express. This idea refers to Wittgensteins aphorism „The limits of my language mean the limits of my world.“
