Exhibition view in the Pinakothek der Moderne with a work by Roland Fischer


People in bed. Looking at themselves in the mirror, sleeping, in ecstasy. The British photographer explores the state of being awake, of dreaming, the state of near and far. Who are we? What are we dreaming about? How does the body behave in ecstasy? At the same time, her pictures consciously recall masterpieces from art history. They are motifs that outlast time, a theme that will always affect us. What happens to us in the state of letting go? How do we see ourselves and, especially, what do we see? Does the mirror reflect our actual self and how are we perceived when we sleep or when we give ourselves sexually? Moments when we are beside ourselves. It is about seeing and being seen, about letting go and controlling.
