This series was shot in Cataluña, Spain (2018/2019)
Walking at night, most of the time with a dog , I felt like we were in a spaceship or a big boat travelling the universe.
All nature elements stand calmly but show their energy.
They exist and live right now.
We share and contribute.
We are crew, not passengers…
Lens based works combine her deep interest in social environments, nature and its life, history and tales.
The images travel the borders of fine art, the illustrative, the graphical… documentary…
Hiko's approach to her subjects, makes her embed into isolated communities to work, eat, sleep
and experience the harshness, love and determination of life.
Light, nature, people and the edge of time…
Last few years she has been traveling and working in Ireland and Lapland, Spain, Cataluña and now in Guatemala.
Combining artist-in-residencies at the Guesthouse (Cork, 2013), Mustarinda (Finland, 2013) and Addaya Art (Mallorca, ES, 2016),
she dives into local communities, looking and seeing, listening and speaking.
Her interpretation can be very instinctive but during the short process up until the photosession,
she integrates the human moments into often a graphical result.
