Beschreibung der Ausstellung: During the Vernissage improvisation dance performances by Fenia Kotsopoulou & Treasure Factory
âStrangeâ is a work-in-progress which is moulding itself and growing.
It is made of several portraits of people of different ages coming from different cultures and backgrounds. All these people have their face partially covered by a layer of cellophane.
There is a distinct shaping game in each portrait, which has the objective of conveying a sense of âtransparent oppressionâ,
a feeling particularly up-to-date.
Although the photographic portrait should âalmostâ always represent the beauty of at least a facial expression, this component disturbs and obstructs, suffocating this expression.
In the background there are fragments of the remains of the Wall of Berlin, glimpses of the historic symbol of mankindâs intolerance and lack of communication. The old wallâs writings and icons appear against the light, almost as a ghost behind the portrait of each single subject.
The works are framed in aluminum and passe-partout. The photos are contaminated by fragments of the cellophane used during the shootings, which create a continuity and break the boundary line between photography and âpackagingâ.
