Walk in the dark.
Shine your light.
There is some fog.
See what you find.
Maybe you discover something new…
FRAGMENTA invite you to “Almost There”, an event with Darrin Zammit Lupi and Karen Irmer which will take place in an underground war-shelter. Participants are requested to bring a torch and waterproof shoes.
In “Almost There” Darrin Zammit Lupi presents beautiful landscape images that were created while on a two-week migrant search and rescue mission this past October, thus providing an in-built disturbance in our personal perception of beauty. Karen Irmer invites viewers to step into and explore unknown mystic spaces physically. Quite often those are, such as the horizon, sites that are unreachable by definition. The aesthetic playing with perception is a concept which often reoccurs in Karen Irmer’s work. What is really there, and what could be? Reality or apparition?
Darrin Zammit Lupi, a photojournalist and documentary photographer, has spent most of his career closely documenting the migration crisis. Works from that body of work have been exhibited in solo shows in Malta, USA, Australia, France and Luxembourg, as well as in collectives in several other countries.
