Witching Hour, 2018
My longstanding interest in mythology and monster-lore culminated in a dissertation in which I explored how contemporary cultural representations of women fueled the European witch-hunts, and how these representations affected women over the following centuries.

Over the course of my dissertation research, it became abundantly clear that this topic would stay with me even after I am done writing. After all it did not only satisfy my curiosity towards witch-lore, but also brought up questions about women and society that are more than relevant today.

Therefore I choose to continue my exploration of witchcraft and femininity in my Major Project, albeit from a less factual, more folkloristic point of view. I introduced witch related superstitions into my imagery with the intention to create a series of images that evoke the folklore with curious details and subtle, eerie atmosphere.
