Entre Quatre Murs, Berlin

Nathalie Daoust


The exhibition consists of 30 orthochromatic boxes. Women are photographed in their intimate, domestic environments surrounded by everyday objects. The contrast between Berlin’s pre–WWII architecture and the contemporary nature of the women’s appearances creates an unusual time-shift, and provides a sense of nostalgia and melancholia to these emotive, domestic portraits. The work pushes beyond traditional photographic methods through the use of experimental darkroom techniques and new technologies
