You can take a photo of the ghostClose
The photo series You can take a picture of the ghost is a photographic documentation of a séance that the artist attended as a curious onlooker. Upon arriving, she was prompted by the hosts to photograph a ghost; catalysing an earnest attempt to capture mysterious phenomena. The photographs depict the results: a wall in a courtyard, an empty chair in a garden – absence.
The unsuccessful ghost photos fail as objective evidence of an invisible appearance, but in causing confusion they succeed in rendering visible a communicational situation lead by expectance, convention, and convergency.
