Les Petites Morts (The Little Deaths)

Assembled under the title Les Petites Morts (The Little Deaths) are a number of photographs and an exhibits case. An idiom or metaphor for orgasm, the term may also refer to the sense that when something undesired happens to a person and has affected them greatly, a part of them might die. The forensic officer's task is to gather information, photograph, examine and retrieve evidence. The 'scene' is a bed and a wall. Within a restricted frame this body of work explores the inability to process an event and forms a dossier of evidence that knowingly contradicts itself whilst plotting a secret geography of the unspoken.
