Doubts become beliefs and desire turn into faith.
by Julia Krahn
8 October – 12 November 2010
JA, ICH WILL! is a part of the MUTTER project developed by the artist, focused on the ambiguity between spiritual needs and emotional uncertainties. By using her body as a symbolic representation of today social troubles, she creates images where doubts become beliefs and desires turn into faith.
From giant format exposed to the viewer to small amulets kept to oneself, our relationship with images changes, but not the understanding. That is the theme of the collaboration with Julia Krahn, giving birth to a photo installation and an edition inspired by holy cards. The project is made of conflicts; exhibition and intimacy, challenge and introspection. Two big size photographs pasted up in the space react to a collection of small cards published in limited edition.
