Sophie Mörner: Polaroids

leave a comment »

I fredags hade Capricious vernissage på Corridor Gallery (334 Grand Ave, Brooklyn). “Logical operator” samlade både konstnärer och uttryck (som varghuvuden, postitlappar och foto) och svenska Sophie Mörner (grundare av Capricious Magazine, en fototidning som kommer ut två gånger per år) ställde ut polaroider som skulle visa “glimpses of a life lived on the edge of women moving towards individual rather than group expression”. Det var fint, samtidigt är jag så mätt på hipstamaticbilder på snygga kompisar att det liksom blir lite svårt när det ska fyllas med så mycket mening. Men gillar verkligen polaroidformatet på utställning, man måste gå nära och titta noga. Mörner jobbade även med film för första gången. Och över båda utställningarna vilade Nan Goldins ande.

ENGLISH: On Friday Capricious had an opening at Corridor Gallery (334 Grand Ave, Brooklyn). “Logical operator” showed a mix of artists and materials (like wolf faces, photographies and post-its) and Swedish Sophie Mörner (founder of Capricious Magazine) showed polaroids; “glimpses of a life lived on the edge of women moving towards individual rather than group expression”. It was nice, but at the same time I get my dose of hipstamatic pictures of cool people on Facebook everyday, so it kind of gets in the way when a work like this wants to be filled with so much more meaning. But I really like the polaroid format on exhibit, it makes you go close and look very closely. Over both exhibitions lingered the ghost of Nan Goldin.
