FACES
 
“FACES”this word, I do not know which Chinese word can interpret it well. This time, I have invited two photographers: one is Benno Helpenstain who comes from Germany, the other one is Bronek Kozka who comes from Australia, and me. We will through our works to express the understanding of “FACES”.
 
Benno Helpenstain is born at Düsseldorf of Germany,who is a young architect and photographer. Series of“Anyone”, Benno uses the architect's language to explain his concept of "human being". Benno makes a bold construction on his friends’ portrait. He used a mechanical element to replace the inner structure and function of human being, so that the mechanical composition can match the skeletal and visceral to be harmonious symbiosis. Because each person's silhouette is so different, and each one has the different properties, these portraits on this exhibition show the same characteristics at the same time, and also display the personalities, especially display the photographer’s philosophical thinking in Germany way.
 
Bronek Kozka is Australia's renowned photography artist, and also is a lecturer of Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology University (RMIT). He focuses on the application of landscape and narrative performance space and the relationship between characters. A series of " 101 " established his art career. More than 15 years, he is not only an excellence commercial photographer but the artist in front of the lens. “The mask I wear" is the proposition work invited by the curator Jenny Gu. The photographer would like to explore the ideas of the memory and those remembered moment. the process of Filming itself attracted artist’s great interest. The creative practice is how to change or plunder us to "save" the real memories? And the unknown and unpredictable shooting results whether can rewrite our memories?
 
Jenny Gu is the Australian independent curator, artist. “The subway of you”, photographer would like to use the film technique to perform a false story through the real people and real scenes, which might be resulted in absurd feeling. The subway is a journey tool; is an information interchange; and is a miniature of society... Here a person is carrying the dream and reality. On the subway, the physical distance between strangers was forced to be shorter, but the heart still exists. The photographer uses the 4:3 proportion of Vintage TV to compose, and uses black and white tone, with subtitles to increase the dramatic conflict. These works express the understanding and caring of photographer of the people living in this scene. She uses a relax way to let the audience look at other people's stories, and think about his/her own life.
 
" FACES " can be said to be The vicissitudes of life. Regardless of Benno Helpenstain’s creative portraits; Bronek Kozka’s great personality of his father; or my false true pictures... This is the life.
