Mental Photographs is a series of self-portraits in English landscapes. The title was inspired by Gurdjeff’s writings to observe oneself in every given moment and take a mental picture of it. Over the last year, I have travelled to iconic locations in England to explore the relationship with my chosen home country. On spot, I enacted spontaneous performances that expressed how each particular landscape made me feel, how one responds to the light, clouds, skies, trees, sounds and smells of a landscape that does not spark any childhood memories.
