Toto Frima, 2001–2002

For 25 years now Toto Frima makes portraits of herself with a polaroid camera. Not only with a small size SX 70 camera but also with one of the rare static cameras which produces 50 x 60 cm directprints, sometimes black and white and sometimes in color. What does she want to tell us with her selfportraits? What is she showing us? Or do her works just give us all the space to see what we want to see?

Opening: Saturday 13 March at 17.00
