Solo Exhibition

»43 (Forty Three)«

Alice Connew

The series Forty Three was created by the photographer Alice Connew in 2013, during Berlin’s worst winter in forty three years. Newly arrived in Berlin, the New Zealand artist was searching for a distraction from the bleakness of the Berlin winter. She used an armless child mannequin found in the rubbish as a synonym for her own isolation in a foreign city. Her pictures do not create this thematic connection boldly, but rather create a tangibly uncomfortable and lost atmosphere.

Alice will also be showing works from two other series, alice | klar and From Across the Gulf. alice | klar stemmed from a yearlong project during which Alice took one photo a day, documenting quotidian life as she settled into a new city. From Across the Gulf, Alice’s most recent work, is an investigation into the construct of loneliness in cities around the world. Inhabiting such disconnect in such densely populated areas is an unspoken taboo and From Across the Gulf attempts to weave connections by redeeming the notion.

Before she settled in Berlin, Alice Connew studied at Ilam School of Fine Arts, University of Canterbury in Christchurch, New Zealand. She is the co-founder of GLORIA Books, a publisher of art and photography books, through which her first book, the series Forty Three, was published. Copies of the book will be available for purchase at the vernissage.

The entrance to EWA Frauenzentrum is generally reserved for women, but men are very welcome to attend the opening reception. Further viewings can be arranged by appointment. We ask for your understanding.
