a little deeper than you thought
The series a little deeper than you thought shows a poetic photographic collection which deals with different discourses about the uncanny and unconscious, death, absurd biological phenomena and an ambivalent image of the male and female body.
“I feel death upon me like a torrent, such as the immediate strike of lightning whose charge I can not imagine. I feel death as something that is full of delights in a circling maze. My dreams are a special liqueur, a kind of dirty water in which I dissapear – and then flows with bloody glimmer.”
– Antonin Artaud
Based on this quote of Antonin Artaud in “Surrealist Texts”, this series consists of several motifs which show different forms and state of aggregations of water. The surreal atmosphere of Röder’s scenographies convey the tension of her figure’s biographical experiences with the focus on expressing the feeling of “losing yourself“.
