Solo Exhibition

»In Absence«

Monika Macdonald

The photographs in the exhibition »In Absence« pulsate with that which is otherwise unspoken. It is a reflection of our times in which old patterns are broken up and new ones are not communicated, where that which is purportedly normal remains stuck in a condition that many have already left. Monika Macdonald has chosen to portray mothers who live in a situation where the nuclear family is not the obvious norm, but neither do they want to be defined on the basis of a simplified image of upright womanhood.

I am not so fond of the idea of taking pictures. But I always return to it. The sense of getting close to something that has no words. This is why I continue. I balance between different worlds that I am trying to relate to. My pictures are memories. To have access to the feeling of solitude and vulnerability. To be allowed beyond sanity, far away from what is called reality.” (Monika Macdonald)
