Wagner+Partner | Berlin

Portrait Extended includes five new intimate works by Natascha Stellmach that address the changing notion of the self, via personal polaroids with text, paint and nail polish, and frottage (made with the artist’s body).

The works in Portrait Extended take into account the search for identity, image and origin. To what extent are we autonomous, or guided by outside forces? And how much power does history and ancestry have over our present? Additionally, these works explore the staging of the self, not only in relation to social identity but also to transience.
