paper, plastic, ink, salt
siblings was part of the joint exhibition Geschwister with artist and curator Niko Wahl, which was shown at Gallery Hinterland in Vienna in June and July 2013. The inspiration for this exhibition was to imagine our unborn siblings. People who could have been instead of or with us.
For me this piece is an homage on my missing siblings, who in a way made "room" for me.
By layering photos of me and my brother I met new faces and it felt like every image created an individual that was neither me nor my brother.
On top of the portraits I grew salt crystals, as a symbolic act of conservation.
