Passion Portrait

Solo exhibition at Kunstverein Konstanz from February 19th till April 17th 2022

The portrait is the second oldest genre of photography. Capturing the essence of a person has challenged photographers since the invention of the medium. But how much a picture can say about a person, what becomes visible between the surface and the core of the being, is a much-discussed question. Loredana Nemes also explores the possible gain in knowledge of a portrait with four of her series of works that have already been exhibited many times and are presented at the Kunstverein Konstanz. In a conceptual approach, she questions the possibilities of a portrait and creates idiosyncratic, complex compositions that are rooted in memory and whose visual languages vary in each case.
