by Alina Frieske
curated by Twenty14
Artist Alina Frieske creates photographic collages in which hundreds of fragments taken from various photographs are assembled into new images. Strongly influenced by the book “Life: A User’s Manual” by Georges Perec, she explores the concept of multiplicity with an intimate look on mundane life. In the context of Images Gibellina, the artist together with curator duo Twenty14 present a selection from her work Abglanz giving life to an installation inspired by the puzzle game “House of Cards”. Combined together, the images camouflage themselves in their mutual imitation. Which contours remain recognisable and what blurs in the multitude? The installation realized also with the support of YET magazine, is designed in order to involve the audience in a playful exploration, visitors can look at the pictures moving inside and around the installation. Using the “game” to stimulate their attention and imagination.
Alina Frieske (Germany, 1994) lives and works in Berlin. She works with assembled images and studies the intersection between photography and painting. She was among the Ones to Watch 2020, British Journal of Photography and she won the 2021 ING Talent award. She exhibited at Images Vevey in 2020.
