From a current work-in-progress – Elegy (la mort l’amour) – dealing with living in an unlivable and unloved city, and the imagined dream of escape.
Dorje de Burgh works within the dark poetics and (self-) reflexive potential of the photographic quotidian. Oblique documentary/collage/video work draws upon lack, liminality, libidinal excess and the paradoxes of dematerialised (image) desire in a schizoid present. His practice is currently concerned with the speculative interrogation of the family archive, centred upon the examination of the photograph’s ruptured relationship with index, memory, temporality, and death within the non-analogue moment.
