Camera Work gallery will show a solo exhibition of the artists Tina Berning and Michelangelo Di Battista in Berlin ( September 4 – October 30, 2010) for the first time.
More than 30 works of “Face/project”, most of them unique pieces, will be on display in the exhibition. Within their collaboration, Tina and Michelangelo blur the boundaries between fashion photography, drawing, and painting. The two artists met for the first time on the occasion of a photo shoot for VOGUE ITALIA in the summer of 2007.
The two started working together and quickly realized the great potential of their creative collaboration. During the shooting Berning and Di Battista noticed that they had entered a territory together which had already previously captured each of them individually.
Ignoring the computer’s possibilities for manipulation, they combined their fields of work, photography, and drawing, anachronistically in an analogue way.
