DER WALD IST FOR LAUTER NATUR

10.12.2002 - 12.01.2003

 

Curated by
Robert F. Hammerstiel
and Heinz Janisch


Polaroids, passport photos, self portraits acted out in front of a mirror (self-timer), staged photos with masks, life-size portraits – self-developed in a make-shift dark room, works with videos and texts… the photographic notes with which the young artists reveal their view of the wold differ greatly. People with a special way of looking experiment with the medium of photography. Invited to do so by the Institute Hartheim and the St Pius Caritas Home (both in Upper Austria), the two artists Robert F. Hammerstiel and Heinz Janisch were able to offer workshops for people who have a handicap. Fascinating “interior views” arose during those workshops.
