Photographic Homecoming & Origins of Fathers 

Text om detta projekt finns bara på engelska

Archival material, silver gelatin prints 10 x 15 cm, various sizes 

In Photographic Homecoming, eight photographs left behind by Kardemark’s paternal grandparents are examined. The images show the artist’s grandfather returning to his childhood home after 50 years. 

In Origins of Fathers, a work containing photographic fragments in black and white, the artist and his father visit the place where the original photographs were taken 25 years earlier. 

The house is a recurring symbol in Kardemark’s work. Themes like identity, masculinity and interhuman relationships also reoccur.
