Huis Clos

Kathleen Meier is a French photographer exploring the depths and width of human psychology – and how our current experiences lead us into future feelings. Could you create your future feelings by placing yourself in certain situations in the present?

The series Huis Clos, meaning «enclosed», confronts us with a suggestive confinement. What happens inside us when we are faced with a desperate situation? What do we feel when we no longer have a connection with the outside world? The disorientation and the loss of contact with the outside world puts us into physical and mental isolation and can lead us into a conscious or subconscious way of modifying, perhaps altering, our relationship with external reality. This isolated maze slowly conducts us into a mental illness.
