PHOTOPIA 2023 - StreetSide Gallery
MeetFrida Foundation X PHOTOPIA
On the occasion of PHOTOPIA, the MeetFrida Foundation will show works by international emerging female artists starting September 21 - to be seen both in the PHOTOPIA STREETSIDE GALLERY of Hamburg Messe und Congress and in an AR gallery at the four-day festival.
The exhibition of the PHOTOPIA STREETSIDE GALLERY in cooperation with MeetFrida will be presented publicly in the shop windows of the Hamburg Messe in Karolinenstraße (clearly visible from the sidewalk) for several months from September 2023 and is titled "current/s". The extensive show of works celebrates diversity and multiplicity of parallel currents and perspectives in photographic art, represented by the positions of female artists. At PHOTOPIA, September 21-24, 2023, the MeetFrida monkey will also bring the exhibition to life in an AR extension.
Works by MeetFrida artists Franziska Ostermann, Theresa Maria Forthaus, Andrea Esswein, Janine Kuehn, Annique Delphine, Damaris Athene and Geeske Janßen will be on display. The adjacent QR codes provide further information about the works and the artists.
Franziska Ostermann is an artist who works intermedially. Central themes of her work are virtuality, digitality and identity. Her work has received numerous awards, including from the British Journal of Photography, the Stiftung Kunstfonds or Profifoto and Canon. Here in the article "Selfportrait with crystal rocks".
Janine Kuehn's works play with reality and perception. Between art and portrait photography, digital and analog techniques and artificial intelligence, her works allow different perspectives to flow together. Here in the article: "lipstick studies I".
An interest in the normal, the everyday and the inaccessible - Geeske Janßen shows what her gaze falls on. She works with photography, video and interviews. Here in the article: "private-parts 9".
Damaris Athene's multidisciplinary practice explores how digital technology is changing the world around us and affecting how we interact with and perceive our own bodies. Flattening and perfecting are questioned through an exploration of the physicality and abstraction of the human form in painting, sculpture, performance, photography, and the boundaries between these mediums. Featured here: "Segmentation Fault.018.2".
Theresa Maria Forthaus works as an artist in the field of tension between visual and performing arts. The interdisciplinary projects stage an interplay between the intangible and the seemingly everyday and explore the limits of our human perception of body and space. Here in the contribution: "Symbiosis".
Andrea Esswein has been working with the medium of "Kopiegraphie" since 1998. Using the photocopier, which serves her as a photographic tool, she first makes the original copies. For this purpose, she places objects, animals and people on the copier. Then Esswein creates a new image by assembling the individually photocopied parts along a rectangular line like the pieces of a puzzle to form a collage. Here in the article: "2210 (Carnations)".
As a multidisciplinary artist, Annique Delphine explores feminism, sexuality and female identity in her works. Reclaim the Feminine" is the motto that accompanies her in her works. Here in the article: Shove from the series "Abundance".
