Research on Susan Sontag with Moderna Museet 

 

The performance took place in the CFF Stockholm during the opening exhibition based on Susan Sontag book 'On Photography'. During the lapse of 5 hours, the performer got my instructions to take selfies intervening the exhibition, disfiguring her face and using as background other artists works. Each instant photo was send to small Wifi printer and place it on the wall by the performer. At the end of the opening a collection of instant photos remains on the wall, for the rest of time the exhibition was open to public.

 

Photography is changing the perception of modern life. It is not possible to imagine the new world without it. Once it changed the position of the viewer and the way to deal with visual experiences, photography becomes more and more addicted of it's magical power.

Eternity of a moment in it suggestive and manipulative way, seduce us to believe in the evidence of pictures: Is what we see reality?...Mind is easy to corrupt.

Any kind of reality is possible, an explosion of the medium today, makes everybody a photographer.

Increasing inflation of images leads to neglecting their meaning. Can photography still protect it real value?
