Christine Miess | Time Collapsing

Miss Miess is presenting her newest photgraphy exhibition.

"The photographs of the series Time Collapsing are multiple exposures on 35 mm film. The key sentence of the work is “Not everything seen is real”. To me, they are a dance between dream and reality. Various points in time collapse within each single negative and evolve into a new pictorial word – some of them smooth and gentle, others seething and tempestuous. Dream worlds burst into existence, seduce us to stay, make us pause for a moment." C.M.

ARTIST STATEMENT
"Pictures – photographs – are perfect liars. They deceive us, lead us to believe in unreal realities, leave us in the dark. But what is “truth”? What is the essence of reality? Why do we so urgently need to believe in something? I have always been fascinated by this play with reality in photography. Not only because pictures – so silently and easily - influence our thoughts and feelings. To me, the upmost appeal of photography lies in its ability to take us on mystic journeys." C.M.

Afterwars I might go to the big INT event which is not far from the gallery.
