VIEW IN MY ROOM
The Disaster Series consists of nine staged photographs of women in hostile environments. The female bodies´ vulnerability is contrary to the places they find themselves in. The women are no victims, instead they gain power by their strong physical presence. The prints of the `Disaster Series´ are exclusively hand-made on thick Baryta gelatin photo paper. They are all taken with a medium size camera on 6x7cm black and white film. There are two different sizes available in the following editions: Size: 18 x 15 inch ( on 19.5 x 15,6 inch white Baryta paper): Edit. #3 Size: 20 x 17 inch ( on 23.4 x 19.5 inch white Baryta paper): Edit. #3 The Disaster Series has been shown in solo exhibitions at galleries in Budapest ( Hungary), Berlin and Lübeck ( Germany). I pack my photographs in hard plastic tubes ( usually used by artists to transport their works) plus a second tube of cardboard for sending. So don´t be afraid of destruction during delivery.

Boris Duhm is born 1971 in Aachen, Germany. He lives and works in Germany Artist Statement Boris Duhms works deal with a visualisation of the mental state of our societies, the contemporary conditio humana. When a situation becomes an image it can become symbolic and gain a political and social dimension. Already in 2007 the philosopher Jean Baudrillard pointed out a change of human perception: reality is percepted as something irrational, vice versa fiction is taken as fact. Boris Duhm ́s analogue photo-stagings, sculptures, paintings, drawings, performances and collages are a journey into this interspace of reality and perception. The figures, which are represented on images or three-dimensional in the exhibition- or in public-space, reveal their nature primal to a closer look. They seem to merge into the environment they move in. Often the fictional places on Boris´ photographs are located in nature, which change into stages on the purely analogue photographs by the existentialistic artist. Here the human drama is performed. Duhm succeeds in transforming the real place into a collective place of memory, where everybody can find oneself in pictures of memory of his own life. The disguised figures populating these places are not themselves but have fulfilled a metamorphosis. They reside in an as-well-as, in a condition of refraction. In "Self as Fern" for example, the artist goes far beyond masquerade: in a mimetic gesture the artist really transforms into a primeval plant. Especially in his latest works, the radicalness of Boris Duhm ́s artist position shows a clear political and social concern and tries to get to the bottom of the authenticity of photographic imprints themselves.

Boris Duhm has been working as teacher for fine art and photography at various universities and art schools in Europe and Asia. www.borisduhm.com www.intagram.com/borisduhm/ Search "Boris Duhm" on google !
