In the series „Dark Whispers” Beatrice Minda investigates private, interior spaces within the context of historical events. In Myanmar, closed off for decades by a rigid military dictatorship, she took pictures of buildings that date to the colonially influenced worlds of the early 20th century.
Her photographs trace the worlds of those buildings’ inhabitants and the signs of change. There are large gaps between the past and the present, and these spaces are animated by an eerie emptiness. They reverberate with a dark kind of whispering – a memento mori which reminds us of the many unspoken facts of Burmese history.
