Torso Reloaded by Nadine Dinter & FACE & FACADE by Afsaneh Nagy

through 1 November 2023 // east Hotel, Hamburg

After the successful solo show Torso Reloaded at HAZEGALLERY in Berlin, photographer Nadine Dinter will present a selection from this series at the design hotel east in Hamburg starting 24 March 2023.

While Dinter’s male torsos celebrate the artful self-presentation of the current generation, the powerful poetic portraits of women by the Hamburg-based artist Afsaneh Nagy can be seen as their counterpoint. In these modern photographs she goes beyond the limits of classic representation, processing and defamiliarizing her subjects until they become mystical shadows, creating room for interpretation.

The series FACE & FACADE takes up the interplay of external perception and the inner emotional world of being human. Sometimes in harmony – sometimes in dark contrast.

Interacting with the historical brick architecture and the illustrious Art Deco windows of the east Hotel, the two photographic positions create a compelling photographic ensemble that invites discussion, enjoyment, or simply observation.
