Some Minutes in the Studio_054


photo performance, three pictures from the 4-part series

My series of photo performances Some Minutes … are to be understood as a continuation of my central subject ‘mask’ in a wider sense. I work with an analogue camera, the Mamiya RB 67 Pro-S. By using self-made filters I can reduce the light entering the camera, so that exposure times from one-and-a-half to fifteen minutes are possible.

During the exposures I operate with different materials, which become visible as traces between planning and chance. The classic topoi of art, such as space/time, presence/absence etc., are currently gaining importance with an “aesthetic of disappearance” in an age of increasing virtualization of social reality.
