Häxan: Witchcraft Through the Ages (1922)

A historical view of witchcraft in seven parts and a variety of styles. First, there is a slide-show alternating inter-titles with drawings and paintings to illustrate the behavior of pagan cultures in the Middle Ages regarding their vision of demons and witches. Then there is a dramatization of the situation of the witches in the Middle Ages, witchcraft and witch-hunts. Finally the film compares the behavior of hysteria of contemporary (1921) women with the behavior of the witches in the Middle Ages, concluding that they are very similar.

During the conception of “Contemporary Pieces, ”I became enamored with the eroticism, presentation and charisma of paintings from the Renaissance Period. In the Late Renaissance, Italian and Dutch painters dealt with the middle and lower classes. In my eyes, Fast Food Culture represents these two social classes in the United States today. To eat healthy is expensive. However, one can buy large amounts of food at a fast food restaurant for a comparatively low price.

I studied many books on the Renaissance from the University Library and asked friends to model for me and recreate the poses of the people in the paintings, with the new touches that I added. I like the fact that my friends in these photographs have tattoos and piercings. It underlines the concept that they are ‘Children of the Modern Age,’ having been brought up in the changing America, often defined by the culture of Fast Food.

Many of my friends try to avoid Fast Food. In their eyes, Fast Food is no longer perceived as food. In their eyes, Fast Food in the United States is comprised of genetically modified items that are designed only for mass consumption. To them, the food becomes a non-edible object and loses its value as being considered Food.

These materials were combined with accessories I found at thrift shops, such as fabrics, candles and glasses.

The result is a series of 5 Portraits and 5 Still Life photographs. The images have a definite sense of humor to them, which helps when talking about social issues with a variety of origins as these photographs contain.

The prints are 50 cm x 70 cm on matte paper with a golden frame.

As a symbol of high social standing, high members of the Chinese aristocracy would often grow their fingernails to an excessive length. This was perhaps a sign that they need not have functional use of their hands for work.
