Photographer Magdalena Bors, who currently works out of Australia, has spent much of her artistic career exploring the creation of small worlds. Often toying with domestic situations that have catapulted nearly out of control, her work toys with domestic life through a silly exaggeration of common routines; crafting to the point of knitting an entire rooms worth of goods, thumb tacks that have grown into their own ant hills on a desk. Thoughtful yet comical, she pokes fun at routine while also creating a rather transfixing sculpture out of it, pointing out an underlying beauty and the inherent art in nearly everything. Her work is child-like yet sophisticated, and reads much like a scene that has lost control through its own charisma and momentum.
“The characters in my latest series of images The Seventh Day have been overtaken by a seemingly uncontrollable compulsion to create complex environments from materials found in the domestic realm. The processes undertaken to create the landscapes are extremely labour intensive and involve repetitive, painstaking tasks. Food scraps and remnants of materials seen in the images allude to the passing of time and the physicality of the processes involved. The resulting scenes resemble familiar, sometimes iconic natural landscapes.” (Excerpt from Source)
