"The beginning of my project Sex and Technology, based on the reuse of images of women in the nude press. Here I have used images of women covering their sex while looking at the viewer, and connected them with two photographs I took in the former concentration camp at Terezin/Theresienstadt in the Czech Republic. The aestheticising of terror from the past is a very widespread phenomenon, which apparently answers to some kind of need… I asked a friend to sing the second voice of a Bach cantata three times, and then I layered these three versions on top of each other."
