The pieces from the series “i_WanT_To_BeLIevE” are focusing on the topic of faith. Personal belief in God, in humans, in one’s own emotions, in love. These pictures could be interpreted as self portraits: intense emotions projected onto cats. Naïve symbolism adopted from the illustrations of medieval chronicles are displayed in the background.

“So let us call this unknown something: God Love. It is nothing more than a name we assign to it. The idea of demonstrating that this unknown something (God Love) exists, could scarcely suggest itself to Reason. For if God Love does not exist it would of course be impossible to prove it; and if he does exist it would be folly to attempt it.(…) But if when I speak of proving God’s Love’s existence I mean that I propose to prove that the Unknown, which exists, is God Love, then I express myself unfortunately. For in that case I do not prove anything, least of all an existence, but merely develop the content of a conception.” – Søren Kierkegaard: Philosophical Fragments, 1844 (edited)
