People and other living creatures have an organic life cycle, and parts of our physical environment also have their cyclic coming into being and decay. The phases that constitute these cycles are unique and characteristic in their development and visual appearance. People, animals, plants, objects and scenes mature and grow old in very different manners. Quite often the penultimate stage of physical existence is characterized by gradual fading, marked by various signs of the approaching end. The photographic interpretations of fading away may range from cold, observing documentation to intimate, subjective involvement.

 

The exhibition Fading also features a collaborative project by Neue Bühne Budapest and PH21 Gallery. Danielle Dutombé of Neue Bühne and photographer Birte Frey presented a “photo theatre” piece as part of the exhibition. Instead of creating a stand-alone photograph their work engages visitors to participate in a physical action and turn the interpretation process into a two-way performance between the art piece and the viewer.
