Sanne Maloe Slecht

Slecht’s work explores the possibilities of visualising the unimaginable. Drawn from contemporary theory juxtaposing quantum-physics and philosophy, Slecht compose visual riddles that occupy multiple planes, realities and languages, creating a new reality that is both otherworldly and fictional, as well as real or existing in a parallel dimension.  

In a space inhabited by possibility, Slecht creates simulacras of images or objects that had no history to begin with. By emulating that what we know, Slecht takes parts of the natural, or real, and pulls them apart, reassembling them in a distinct and rebellious way; dismissing taste as a relevant criteria- so that it exceeds it’s natural counterpart. Taking the ‘blob’ as the main inhabitant and form of this new found space, Slecht’s work revolves around ideas of tactility, science-fiction, eroticism and alienation.
