DUO – performance by:
Magdalena ZEISEL and Péter MÁTRAI
Magdalena ZEISEL’s photo and video series explores and demonstrates the “performance capacity” of light and translucent materials. The images are created indirectly, they are partly results of illusions: the still life arrangements are altered by the light and the environment.
The unretouched photos, created with simple photographic tools, constitute the first chapter of a cycle that began in the autumn of 2014. The items arranged in the interior still lifes – in the artist’s home – are made of plexi, glass, mirrors, tracing paper, and occasionally of copper sheets. In a second phase of the experiment, the arrangements are placed into “unfamiliar” settings, as well en plein air, photographed in complete darkness lit only by a flashlight.
