BENEATH - REACQUAINTANCE WITH THE SELF AFTER IMMERSING UNDER SURFACES - SERIES II, part I


Projection on WKO building in Vienna, Austria


Specialised in under water visuals, the artist Susanne Stemmer invites us to change perspective and follow her under the surface.

The characters in her work are free and boundless as soon as they immerse. -  A physical freedom with the imaginary loss of gravity as well as mental freedom, - opening the possibilities to re-consider conventions and drop masks and images considered to be necessary to survive in our societies.

A pause for a moment from the speed and noises of our cities, a rediscovery of a long forgotten freedom - an inner journey and reacquaintance with the self.

Thanks for the lovely cooperation and support: WKO Austria, ARTSY, unitedmotionlabs.com, friendlyfire.at

BENEATH - REACQUAINTANCE WITH THE SELF AFTER IMMERSING UNDER SURFACES


Nuit Blanche 2018 Official Selection
Paris City Hall


Presented for the first time in Venice, on occasion of Biennale Arte 2017, BENEATH is an artistic project which invites us to immerse under the surface and discover another world.  The noises of the cities disappear, time seems to stand still. In this other universe beneath the surface, we are free and boundless. Alone and without any gravity we find tranquility to rediscover ourselves and drop our masks we imagine we have to wear to exist in our society.  

Here - under the surface - we have the chance of a reacquaintance with ourselves.

Specialised in underwater photography, the artist Susanne Stemmer examines the changes that human beings experience after their immersion through the surface. The characters illustrated in her works are free and boundless as soon as they immerse. A physical freedom with the imaginary loss of gravity as well as mental freedom, abandoning their image, having the feeling nobody is watching them - finally being able to release themselves from all conventions and drop the mask they are wearing in society.

An inner journey begins into a world we rediscover ourselves, a dream world, photographed and still resembling an imaginary painting.
