by Andreas Waldschütz
The desert, sand, infinite silence, interwoven with memories: in the exhibition SAND PEOPLE artist Andreas Waldschütz - in cooperation with Adia Trischler and his team - shows fashion photography embedded in a tale of great desire. It is not merely the pretty pictures the artist is concerned with. It is far more. Kolmanskop, a ghost town in Namibia provides the setting. Aspiring designers Una Burke, Fflur and Ara Jo from London, and Vienna-based George Bezhanishvili from Tbilisi/Georgia supply fantastic fashion that seems lost in reverie. Besides capturing the bizarre scenery and its moods, a tale of love, dreams and the power of desire fuelled by solitude is transported.
In addition to large-scale photographs, the exhibition will also feature an art film and the garments of the designers. Everything will be accentuated by music specially composed for this project by zanshin (depart, ogris debris).
