Elisabeth is ver excited to be presenting her photographic exhibition STADTKÖRPER at Dance Live Festival Aberdeen throughout October. More information on: httpss://www.dancelivefestival.co.uk/exhibition
The project STADTKÖRPER was inspired by the architectural city scape of Berlin, which I had the chance of exploring during a stay in 2013. Even though certain parts of the city are marked by new constructions, chains and restorations, the historic traces of the city are omnipresent and hard to overlook. The way in which the energy of these traces, their heaviness and their decay manifests itself in the everyday presence inspired me to try to capture them in the interplay between dance and photography. Dance, an artform of presence, unites with the still image of photography; thus atmospheres, expressions, shapes and impressions are being captured.
The working process was from the very beginning conceived as a collaboration with various different photographers. In all this, I have been particularly interested in the individual approaches of the subject movement, but also in the diverse perspectives on buildings, the city scape, and especially their framing and composition. How does the still image of photography capture what seems to inevitably escape it?
The exhibition shows a selection of images that have been created throughout this project.
