Fratzen Show

photography 2011

Since everyone is on facebook today and you can read everything about all of your "friends", people loose the view for their own personal goals. Instead they pursue objectives that are "hipster" or "cool" when the internet tells so.

So the idea was to make an exhibition about those who lost their own faces and merge them amongst each other. The viewer cannot identify which part of the face is still the original one of the head and which one part is from another face. Just like the people which were blemished by the internet.

To complete the exhibition I added dozens of ironical self-portraits where I put my face onto old retro-trash pictures. I don't know if anyone recognized the humour in it. Anyway I had much fun by myself transforming myself into different funky people.
