PORTRAITS OF THE MISSING PART
Portraits of the missing part, Series of 6 photos, 60 x 90 cm, Chromalux print on Dibond, 2007
Portraits of the missing part consists of six photographs, depicting the studio of the artist. The room is photographed from always the same spot at both day and night. Light falls in different angles into the window evincing the passing of time. The incidence of light of the night pictures is correlating identically with the ones in daylight.
Photography is the depiction of a single moment in time. Domke chooses to portray the same scenario, a reproduction of her own studio, in six different pictures and deconstructs by that the time dimension. The notion of the photographic unique moment decays further, when we learn that the whole scenery is a studio set up. The title elaborates further on the incompleteness of the photographic picture.
