The pieces from the series “i_WanT_To_BeLIevE” are focusing on the topic of faith. Personal belief in God, in humans, in one’s own emotions, in love. These pictures could be interpreted as self portraits: intense emotions projected onto cats. Naïve symbolism adopted from the illustrations of medieval chronicles are displayed in the background.
“So let us call this unknown something:
God Love. It is nothing more than a name we assign to it. The idea of demonstrating that this unknown something ( God Love) exists, could scarcely suggest itself to Reason. For if God Love does not exist it would of course be impossible to prove it; and if he does exist it would be folly to attempt it.(…) But if when I speak of proving God’s Love’s existence I mean that I propose to prove that the Unknown, which exists, is God Love, then I express myself unfortunately. For in that case I do not prove anything, least of all an existence, but merely develop the content of a conception.” – Søren Kierkegaard: Philosophical Fragments, 1844 (edited)
