Perpetratio plays on the appearance of image and colour, and questions the meaning and manipulation of images. Initially, a colour photo found in 2007: three young women dressed in colourful loincloths, looking cheerful and smiling, are walking in a barren landscape. They are refugees from Darfur and venture outside their camp for dead wood. This photo was reworked and transformed into a series of pictures with a narrative thread. However, each picture carries its own narration, which can be disrupted by the next picture. Finally, several possible narrations will have come to mind without getting to a genuine conclusion.
