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 created new faces. Every image eerily gave life to an individual that had strong resemblance to me or my brother but a unique personality.
On top of the portraits I grew salt crystals, as a symbolic act of conservation.
