21st August - 19th September 2010
photo competition / exhibition
Bad Gastein, Austria
Frame it is taking place for the 1st time this year in Bad Gastein. It is an art festival with several venues and programs in late summer and autumn. The Frame Award is an open call photo competition within this festival accompanied by an exhibition in a hydroelectric power plant next to the Bad Gastein waterfall.
The jury decided to assign the Frame Award to my project "Heimat". It is a postcard series of 4 photographs I did in 2008. This time one of the sujets will be put up in the size of 4 x 6 meters in the main square of Bad Gastein. The other 3 are part of the exhibition in the power plant.
Besides the Award I am really excited to position this piece in public space which was initially also a reason for doing a postcard series of them. Bad Gastein, due to its tourism and clichè alpine look, additionally seems to be the perfect environment for this project.
The press conference will be held on a rope bridge up the mountain on 2100 meters. "Heimat I" will be uncovered in the Award ceremony on Sat 21th of August at 8pm.
The two Recognition Awards go to Nora Riedl and Judith Saupper. The photo show in the power plant involves also a selection of the other applicants of the open call.
