"Mom was 63 years"
This is an exhibition about a boy living with fear of death and solitude. A feeling that follows the boy throughout his life to adulthood, and never disappears. A constant feeling that a choice must be made between two adults and thoughts about death and life.
- In the photos, I chose to work with my oldest son because he is a replica of myself as a child. A person who keeps a lot to himself and thinks a lot. Fear is constantly present and a feeling of not knowing what will happen in the future, he says.
Already at the age of 16 the artist experienced the fragility of life when his mother got cancer. His parents were divorced, and with no siblings his mother was the artist's only security in a threatening world. The mother ended her life at a hospice 23 years later.
