If you are in the Cork area (Cobh specifically) next Thursday, June 9th, this opening would be worth attending.
Heaven is Under Construction reflects the artist’s daily life through captivating black and white imagery. Siefert transforms mundane moments into poetic impressions of the places and people she passes. A collection of enigmatic photographs which hold within them a visual language evoking a plethora of emotions; sometimes captured as if from the periphery of her vision, quite by accident. At other points the works convey very direct confrontations of her intimate surroundings, through a mixture of portraiture and landscape, which resonate with a strong inner soundtrack of empathy and intensity.
Photographer Mirjam Siefert was born in Southern Germany in 1978 and presently lives and works in Berlin. She is a founding member of Pavlov’s Dog Gallery and also of the photographic collective “neunplus”, both of which are located in Berlin. Her works have been exhibited internationally in Tokyo, Krakow, Paris, Moscow, Dublin, Denmark, Brussels and Istanbul just to name a few locations.
