Verzasca Foto Festival Awards - 2019 Nera Prize
Akosua Viktoria Adu-Sanyah
Tedious perception of time and repetition and experiencing space somatically. Scriptless but planned, I expose myself to a specific situation in front of the camera. Being alone is important. Being alone is a skill. Can I gain routine in falling? How long is an hour at midnight in the woods? Does audience matter? Can there be a performative context without someone witnessing? Self Dissolving does neither stage nor document. 'Self Dissolving' contains pieces of performative photographic work from raw indoor studios to unknown fields outdoors at night which has been produced over several years until this day.
