MAANSI JAIN & LUCIA SCIANDRO
PHOTOGRAPHY EXHIBITION OCTOBER 2015
OPENING 15.10.2015 – 7PM
CLUB – BIEBRICHER STRASSE 14 – 12053 BERLIN
Maansi Jain is a German-born American artist and photographer currently living and working in Berlin, Germany. Most recently, her work has been shown in New York, Los Angles, Berlin and Dublin.In her photography, Ms. Jain always has her eyes focused on action. She analyzes the scene painstakingly in seconds, and shows us our own culture of self-aware posing. In Ms. Jain’s photos the passerby is transformed into an actor or at least an extra, all of whom she seems to be directing.
Lucía Sciandro is a berlin based photographer born in Uruguay. When Lucía Sciandro looks at the world, she does not observe the usual distinctions between bodies and other objects. As limbs and torsos are inserted into a landscape they become either extraneous or synonymous with it; but who do they belong to, these object-bodies? They cannot be ‘placed’ or recognised, but they can be dis-placed, into lines of architecture, a stolen glance on a balcony, or as wrapping for tyre-swings.
