Group Exhibition

»Was ist ICH – Auseinandersetzung zum SelbstPortrait«

Curated by Miriam Zlobinski, Jana Ritchie and Lars Dreiucker

Stephan Bögel, Aina Climent, Daniela Djukic, Sonja Irouschek, Jonas Maron, Barbara Proschak, Jana Ritchie, Alina Simmelbauer

The self-portrait is an openly interpreted, artistic examination in the age of everyday self-depiction – the omnipresent communication form of the Selfie. This exhibition takes form as a visually layered discussion that opposes the aesthetics and delusions produced by the Instagram craze. Eight artists show their photographic positions in the form of prints and video installations, and place their focus on the personally fluctuating “Me”.

Stephan Bögel makes the incomprehensible comprehensible, and the invisible visible: In “Scenic Utah”, he directs his focus to his father, who committed suicide.

Once photographs have been thrown out or cheaply sold, apparently deemed worthless after the death of their previous owner, Sonja Irouschek takes over the roles of the depicted persons.

Alina Simmelbauer seeks and portrays other girls, in which she again finds herself. Forming a typology of the younger “me’s” in the faces of strangers.

Questions are raised in further photographic and video-based works: How do I see myself? How does one localize personality, individuality, and its presentation? Which photographic traditions are embodied by the Portrait? What is ME?
