Mirka Laura Severa - Swallow

Oct 16, 2013

2011 / 2012 »Until a minute ago it felt so real, but now it seems imaginary. Just a few steps is all it takes for everything associated with it to lose all sense of reality. And me – the person who was there until a moment ago now – I now seem imaginary too.« Haruki Murakami, Kafka on the Shore The security of ones past is slowly evaporating without anyone noticing. Memories are seamlessly veiled by new emotions and only a distanced perspective of ones own past reveals the skewed and distorted state it has taken. The work is about the confrontation with the theme of childhood and memory. It takes place in the Czech Republic, Spain and Germany, which are key places of my life, where I returned to in order to work on this project. From all Motives exist handmade analog c-prints, with sizes ranging from 110 x 75 cm to 80 x 65 cm. For any further information visit mirkalaurasevera.com

Verena Brandt

Oct 21, 2013 - Mirka Laura Severa

Verena Brandt Muss ja. Und selbst? - Fragments of everyday life For many years I deal with the term of „daily life“ in my photographic work. More than exotic foreign countries or spectacular events I am interested in the small things in my surrounding. The allegedly familiar which is often taken for granted and doesn't get any attention.
