Click to zoom Universal Pattern photo book cover

In Tina Hage’s photographic practice, she is interested in the relationship between the collective and the individual, specifically with how it is represented in the mass media. She deploys contemporary photojournalistic and topical imagery from newspapers and the internet, and reflects upon it by using herself repetitively to re-enact the found scenes.

The kind of photographs she references feel representative of that moment in time either politically or socially. The journalistic photographs she selects to work with, often appear more than once in various media and as a result, a pattern is formed through their repetition. Patterns influence her work stylistically, formally and in their content.

She is particularly curious in why these images have an iconic quality to them, and how they come to represent a specific event. When investigating the visual language of the photographs, the re-enactment of these images have the quality of a constant switching between the recognisable and unrecognisable motifs of the final print: The formal aspects and content of the image are plausible yet simultaneously absurd.
