FUR - WALK IN CLOSET
22 NOVEMBER - 22 DECEMBER 2013
A couple of days ago, a complete photo exhibition of “safari trophies” arrived in our gallery. During a year running this space, we have experienced the most electrifying relationship with an artist that frankly gets annoyed when her own persona comes up. We met Eva Lena by chance at a party in an old apartment in Paris. When we asked questions and wanted to know more about her, she became upset.
- I'm NOBODY, SOMEBODY and ANYBODY.
“Fur” dialogues with the superficiality of anyone’s identity, how we appropriate of other visual cultures to impose who we are at that specific time and location. We only know Eva Lena between these surfaces and imageries constructed through her work; perhaps she is always hiding herself behind animal’s skin.
