Quiddity is a new photographic series by artist Artem Trofimenko. The work investigates relationships, intimate as well as ones relationship with the symbolic world. It takes place within several instances of close collaboration where the boundary between the dream world of the subjects is thin. In collaboration with a sound artist Chloe Tetrault, Quiddity was developed into audio/visual performance.
