Photographing porcelain figures the moment they hit the ground, Martin Klimas injects a sense of motion and chaos into an otherwise stationary object. The artist has taken a similar approach to photographing a moment of impact with bullets zipping through vases. For the figures, Klimas says that “the porcelain statuette bursting into pieces isn’t what really captures the attention; the fascination lies in the genesis of a dynamic figure that seems to stop/pause the time and make time visible itself.”
