The photographic series "One Hundred Little Deaths"
is the artist Janaina Tschape
's meditation on mortality, both dark and oddly humorous photographs
taken all over the world. The artist lies face down in empty rooms, houses, casxtles, gardens, on beaches, fields, oceans and bridges, daring the viewer to decide, is she sleeping, dead or merely joking? Within the different environments the only constant is her prostrate form, inviting fictions of crime and liberating the artist both as subject and creator from all spatial and temporal boundaries.
