The photographic work presented is based on the Foucauldian concept of Heterotopia and its subsequent interpretations, best summarised as follows:

“Heterotopic relationships unsettle because they have the effect of making things appear out of place. The juxtaposition of the unusual creates a challenge to all settled representations; it challenges order and its sense of fixity and certainty. This process of similitude is revelatory, like a collage, it brings forward the out-of-place and offers it up as a basis for alternative perspectives and orderings….”
