Fat Galerie is pleased to announce its forthcoming exhibition ROAM THE LANDS by Estelle Hanania. Winner of the Hyères Festival Price of Photography, she will show here almost 20 pictures from her recent work. The show takes place on the two floors of the gallery: On the first/ground floor, Demoniac Babble,
a photographic-plastic project, scouts into the deep relationship between man and nature during pagan rituals. In 2007, Estelle Hanania went to a remote mountainous part of Switzerland to take ambiguous and challenging images of an actual Embodied Nature. For days, she tagged along a group of a dozen of men, wearing incredible suits, patiently handmade by them along the months before the event and the procession. She mingled with this plant-human crossover cortege and followed them on their customary walk from one barn to the next farm, singing and dancing to the point of exhaustion. The photographer’s interest for folk cultures and customs is also an important part of her still-life work over the years. Organic surfaces ready to absorb you, hybrid artifacts of worships and traditional rituals all report for lost civilizations and vanishing customs.
On the basement floor, Estelle Hanania shows a series of night shots. The title for the series is “The Twelve Nights”.
Here again, man is in the heart of a ceremony. The characters wear impressively big hair dress, lit from the inside with candles. They roam and walk rapidly around an Austrian village. Thee shapes disappear here and the bewitching dance rocks us to the point of dizziness. Again, still-life pictures will fit in and open gates to new wandering paths from the series.
