Bon appétit, ma chérie !My work explores the potentiality of photo-montage to expose a greater truth, against the tendency of mass-media imagery to conceal ideological agendas. Through the form of fragments and juxtaposition, I take a critical view of social, political and cultural issues, drawing my inspiration from the work of John Heartfield, Hannah Höch, Peter Kennard and Barbara Kruger, among others. While I acknowledge the overload of visual information in the digital age, I emphasise the importance of individual interpretation for how we consume such images. In this work I make use of appropriated material, as well as my own photographs, which are then lost in the flood of imagery.
