‘Sometimes facts are harder to believe than a fairy tale. For those of you who believe in conspiracy theories; here is another one about Anotherland.
The fact is: In mid-January!!! this year files from my Anotherland series were lost from a hard-drive. Something that has rarely happened in my system. With the help of a special VR programme I was able to get some files back. Not all, but TIF’s appeared on different locations with different file names and when I opened them it looked like a complete ruined/adapted/corrupted/reinvented image. So the virus that spread around my hard-drive, erased some files, and corrupted others, some were lost.
Others were changed into something like being built in a gen-manipulation lab and controlled by a foreign power. This might be a fairy tale.
The fact is: the Anotherland series describes situations and characters, that appear to be exotic but are staged around the corner of my house and studio.
The fact is: the model in this picture is now in exile on an exotic remote island located far from her home situation.
The fact is: I changed nothing on the files, they came out like this and I am printing them now as large unique prints. Only one of them will exist, for now, for ever…’
