The group exhibition transformative embodiments shows a cross-section of young artistic positions that deal in particular with one‘s own and other bodies through the photographic medium.
MANUEL CARREON LOPEZ performatively creates self-portraits, that serve as fugitive sculptural material. The body is fixed into a permanent composition by translating the images into the resulting photographic objects.
KATRIN HANGA uses her pictures to develop an individual poetic imagery, in which body and gaze intertwine with the materiality of the photographic technique.
ANNAMARIA KOWALSKY explores the boundaries between condensed image planes in her self-portrait series Anonymous through photography and painting. The seemingly frank view onto the averted body is hidden in paint, to be cut through again.
THERESA WEY photographs mainly in autobiographical contexts. Portraits become testimonies of encounters, to make herself and others visible in images that reflect relationships and intimacy.
