The stories start off in the same way, all inspired by pre-owned objects. Rhinestone lashes, a police booking sheet with fingerprints, a Russian gun holster and six 1940s dolls with loose limbs, all led to a character and a chapter in the collection of tragicomic tales.

DARLENE & ME 15 January 2015 – 10 March 2015 at The Little Black Gallery.
Darlene & Me started with the content of a suitcase from 1959, that left me thinking about the relationship we have with ourselves. The case belonged to a beauty counselor named Darlene and contained makeup samples, brochures and the receipts from her sales. Most of the samples appeared to be untouched, but there were clear traces of her fingers in the two lipstick colors Strawberry Festival and Princess Pink. In August 1960 Darlene sold a jar of Liquid Beauty and one Temptress’s Hairspray, both were to herself. After that she made no more sales. The case left me with a feeling of a woman’s failed attempt at success, and a strong sense of who got in her way. The woman I envisioned became the only character of my next series, Darlene and Me. Isolated in a rented house in the Californian desert, I took on the part of Darlene to tell the story of my fictional characters intricate relationship to herself. Darlene & Me portray two women, photographed together in displays of conflict or simply in each others company whether in agony or comfort. The two are, of course the same woman.
