Between Daydreams and Nightmares

Artist statement

Between Daydreams and Nightmares

The photograph is part of a series titled Stars by Daylight. The inspiration behind the work is the thin line between childhood and adulthood. As we grow up, we are introduced to the notion of sin and forgiveness. In this photograph the former is symbolised through the pig, and the latter by the roaster, based on local beliefs. The two are put in conversation with each other in this work.
