So Close So Far: Photography Installation by Anoring
Vernissage: 13th June 2019 19:00
Exhibition duration: 13 June - 19 June 2019
'So Close So Far' is a 3D photography installation consisting of three parts by Berlin-based-Russian-born visual artist Anoring aka Tatiana Hahn. The piece actively engages the viewer with the human authorities of perception. We look at the world, and yet it for the most part it remains unseen. "An act of perceiving a still picture however, invites the viewer to explore" says Anoring, "The story which comes with a photograph is evolving just as we watch and recognize things and people. We build our subjective perception and rely on that image."
The project 'So Close So Far' is a diptych. The first part, a diorama, invites the viewer to step into a landscape scene with an altered view of the Brooklyn Bridge in NY at its center. The perspective and visual importance of the objects in the scene are manipulated by the artist in order to inverse and generally subvert the typical perception of the metropolitan landscape.
The second part, entitled 'Same Place Another Time' is an interactive projection. Any willing participant will be automatically photographed and placed among the others in an ever evolving group portrait.
An auxiliary part of the project is a book/puzzle of 100 numbered 10x15 cm cards. The viewer is herself invited to recreate the landscape.
Tatiana Hahn was born in 1988 in Moscow, Russia. In 2015 she received a BA in Arts of Photography from the Mossovet College, Moscow and in 2018 graduated from the Ostkreuzschule für Fotografie, Berlin. Hahn was included in various exhibitions including the Festival Young Photography “Presence” in St.Peterburg, Boehmers “Islands” Oranienstrasse in Berlin and “12 Jahrgang Abschlussausstellung”, Ostkreuzschule für Fotografie, Berlin.
