Jacqueline Roditi questions the concept of the house using a poetic style in her photographic Inside Us series, which opens on Thursday, 21 April at Sanayi313.

Photographer Jacqueline Roditi has a fascination with the quiet corners of her house that catch her attention as she stares at the walls at different times of the day. Her new series focuses on the body silhouettes she ‘sees’ on the walls. Roditi invites the onlooker to carefully observe the unseen in the ordinary. The photographs, which look like they were drawn with charcoal, and the grainy texture of the paper seem to lead us out of the boundaries of the photographic image itself.

Sections of Roditi’s white-washed walls, reminiscent of male and female bodies, refer to the mother’s womb – our first abode.

According to Gaston Bachelard, ‘the house shelters day-dreaming, the house protects the dreamer, the house allows one to dream in peace.’
