The Escapades of The Higher Man interprets Nietzsche’s philosophy regarding The Higher Man as ‘God’s successor’. Exploring this concept through absurdist, sometimes perilous, performative gestures, Pope also critically re-examines the notion of ‘the everyday’. The performative act, in Pope’s practice, highlights the creative dialogue between photography as document and the unique, live event. The resulting images encourage the viewer to invent meaning in the blurred space between fact and fiction. www.tompope.co.uk
