Carolina Magnin – Ánima (Liebe)
Opening: Saturday, March 28, 2015, 7 pm
Exhibition: Mar 29 – Apr 26, 2015
The subject of Carolina Magnin’s work ÁNIMA is themed around memory.
ÁNIMA is a work that changes its form of expression in relation to time and space, like memory itself. In this sense the artist intends to create an intersection of German and Argentinean past in Berlin under the additional title (LIEBE). This time she is going to add finds from Berlin to the found objects brought from Argentina.
As in the other works from Carolina Magnin the process is of particular significance in this one. The conscious use of original photographs with finger prints, dust, scratches and discolorations serves as the artist’s metaphor for the past and creates authenticity.
The resulting photo-objects, often made from transparent materials, seem to take in–as an additional layer–the history of the place where they are shown.
