Since the beginning of his photographic practice, Felix Nybergh has been engaging with  the problematic notion of definition. In his earlier works, the main subject was set  straightly on the genuine act of defining, weighing information on both a text and a  photograph against each other. Subsequently his practices have been exercised to  understand the structure of the photographic image, how it is built, formed and how these various factors affect its viewing.

As an outcome of this process, it is his latest project “Ibid.” He employed the repetitive patterns of everyday life in the mixture of the public appearance and the private experience as a subject matter in order to examine the repetitive nature of the photographic medium.

Through his current practice, Nybergh is investigating in which ways the photograph is  used in order to justify and encourage (social) repetition and, how on the opposite, the image can function as a means of revealing these repetitive structures. The first initiating attempt is to put the linearity of (textual) history on a par with the ahistorical nature of the photograph.
