Elfie Semotans Serie „Bad Seeds“ portraitiert das junge Fotomodell Natalia Vodianova während verschiedener Stadien der Wut. Den Porträts ist eine szenische Folge von Bildern gegenübergestellt, die den Gipfel des Ausbruches zeigen. Die Fotografin verlieh den „Painted Contacts“ ihre bunten Markierungen und Umrahmungen damals, um sie aus der Menge hervorzuheben. Heute erfüllen diese reizvollen Eingriffe einen ganz anderen Zweck.
Die Ausstellung läuft von 14. bis 30. August 2019 (ART NON STOP).
