| EYES OF THE SKIN |

photography by Katrin Freisager

Katrin’s most famous works show young women in dream-like states – abstracted. Her subtle game with costumes and body compositions generate that small frame and mysterious atmosphere that make her work unique. It may seem gaunt, but there’s more to her photographs than just what the eye can see – an entrancing, disrupting uncertainty. Playing with the ambivalence of fiction and reality, she manages to make her images take us to the future and the past at the same time.

| NEW TREES |

Robert Voit has discovered a new species of plant that he calls “new trees” – cellular phone antennae of steel, fibreglass and plastic, camouflaged as trees. This unusual new life form can be found all over the world. There are pinentrees, palm trees, cypresses, cacti and various deciduous trees. Some are in the desert or in newly planted forests; others are in fields and parking lots, next to highways and in housing developments. Voit has photographed these trees in the USA, South Africa and Europe, creating a peculiar arboretum where reality and illusion are blurred.”

As jigsaw puzzles piece together to a form a visual image, the sedimentation of symbols within Christto & Andrew’s photographs reveal the affects of history, politics, the economy and popular culture into the construction of contemporary society specifically found in the Gulf region. Using Qatar as an example, exaggerated colours, staged compositions and uncanny humour hightlight this constant development, and the malleable state of transformations into which its multitude of lifestyles are nurtured and interact.
