By Esther Irena Vörösmarty
With her photo installation FIEBERBLASE°, Esther Irena Vörösmarty makes a photographic statement on the contemporary media situation. Sensory overload, advertising machinery and fashion dictation permanently arouse longings and oftentimes result in negative consequences for the addressee who somehow has to deal with unfulfilled dreams, confusion and excessive demands. Social and political deficiencies are displayed in an increasingly permissive manner and are therefore exposed, but at the same time also suggest a seeming necessity of the status quo. Being in quest of its inner self, our society moves in a downward spiral whose formal equivalent is underlined by round photo objects.
Her installation has to be understood as a "monument to our present decadence" and likewise a tribute to humanity.
