CURATOR´S SELECTION #3Plants and bodies become structures, a solo show by Geraldine Haas

25.4. – 6.6.2016

The impressive photographic work of Geraldine Haas deals with the sculptural in poses of human beings as well as in the stylized reproduction of the nature. In her early oeuvre Geraldine has started to document her direct environment – her neighborhood, her mother, including herself while examining gestures, poses and the desire for self-portrayal of our todays society. With a mixture of documental and staged photography she created a stylized aesthetics which she transferred later to the visualization of the botanical world. The online exhibition investigates this duality by presenting black and white photographs of her serial works ,,Botanical Structures“, 2016 and ,,Body Structures“, 2015. Without any postproduction the images exhibit a strong awareness of form and a common visual language by clarifying the central theme of Geraldine´s work – plants and bodies become structures.
