Melancholia (2015)
Medium: Photographic print on archival paper
Dimensions: 80 × 128 cm.

The digital print entitled Melancholia references the famous Melencolia I (1514) engraving by Albrecht Dürer while deriving some of its aesthetics from an iconic vaporwave album cover: Floral Shoppe (2011) by Macintosh Plus. Instead of the sculpture of a Greek god Helios, it places Dürer's solid inside an artificial landscape illuminated by the glow of the comet also derived from Dürer's engraving. This lighting may evoke associations with an unreal and apocalyptic landscape (itself derived from the German romanticism) of Lars von Trier's movie Melancholia (2011), part of his Depression Trilogy, where a rogue planet called Melancholia is about to collide with Earth bringing the end of the world.
