HeSheandI

a farmer, an engineer and a civil servant – three male identities are stereotypically constructed in the series hesheandi. rapidly received phenomenologically, recognition of a picture puzzle grows only with increasing contemplation: the subject seems to be variables of one person which, on account of visible androgyny, are legible as woman in male role. they are self-portraits of the photographer, she slips into a male and additionally into a female role: thus, brother and sister encounter each other in some shots. the three narratively staged lives of the man could have been that of the brother who passed away 40 years ago. this self-reflective performance plays with the splitting of identity within a heteronormative, binary construct surrounding gender roles.

shops

“shop counters are offerings: if it is on the counter, it is on display and for sale. where climatically possible, the shop counter marks the boundary between inside and out. inside stands the shopkeeper, buyers stand outside, the goods are between them. as an ensemble shop counters are an architectural theme that is as ancient as it is fascinating – and when they are collected so compellingly throughout the world as they are by anja schlamann, they are what’s more a seductive offering made to the eye. the work shows shop counters from damascus, the oldest city in the world, from morocco and from cuba, the last stronghold of communist shadow economy. here, the presentations of spices and delicacies carefully calculated for centuries, there, the spontaneously deposited staple foods and spare parts: the counters bear the responsibility for daily survival and cultural added value alike. and behind the counter stand shopkeepers who see themselves in the picture, for anja schlamann draws their attention to themselves, quite deliberately: once more photography proves to be a machine generating symbols and myths, thanks be to anja schlamann.”
