In their exhibition EXTENDED SURFACES, Asta Cink and Erika Farina discourse on the perception of surfaces on the body and on the image. Through a collaborative photographic study exploring surfaces of clothing and their textures, the two use different media to talk about the relationship between motif and photography. Just as the textile surfaces are photographed and translated to an ostensibly two-dimensional layer, the surface becomes an image, the image becomes a body, the texture apparel a structure. And while the images find a body, the clothing loses the wearers.
Erika Farina is a tailor and fashion designer based in Vienna. Asta Cink was an actress and dancer and eventually found her way to photography through performance art and now works with lens-based media.
