OPEN LANDSCAPES — CLOSED ROOMS
>>For LIVRAISON N°4 we asked a selection of people we admire to explore private spaces, places of memory and topographies of the mind photographically and philosophically.<<
We were curious to understand what a place actually is and realized that the answer to this question is as manifold as it is subjective. Is it even possible to come up with a stable formula or definition of it? Or is what we understand as >place< a much more haunting, elusive entity?
The heterogenous mix of images and texts that we had the opportunity to compile for this issue seems to suggest the latter. The places and rooms of our lives are ghosts and they determine who we are to a much larger extent than we tend to give them credit for.
But as surely as night follows day, Livraison doesn’t limit itself to one form of expression. The secret personalites of some are perfectly complemented by the secret appearances of others. In Livraison III, 69 photographers, including Bela Borsodi, Helmut Lang, Sølve Sundsbø, Richard Burbridge and Viviane Sassen, manifest their visions of secret identities by using masks to conceal the real identity of their objects, create a sort of dualism, erase or enhance the person behind the mask and give birth to a new identity.
