What If… by Senna Coronet and MM (Mysterr) is one part out of a two-part exhibit that opened a few days ago at the Nitroglobus Gallery. I will add a post about the other part of the exhibit, The Path by Nitro Fireguard, here on this blog very soon. Curated by Dido Haas, this show is an extraordinarily beautiful fit for the gallery with its expansive size and reflective floors. The large-sized images on the walls work incredibly well. The photographs also complement the sculptures by Nitro without overpowering them; all in all this is one of the best shows I have seen in this gallery so far.
This exhibit by Senna and Mysterr is inspired by the poem If by Rudyard Kipling. The photographs are about longing and the possibility of love as well as the fear of loss. The images are all large and seem oversized, the nude bodies depicted expand over the entirety of the surfaces and cover them completely. It is hard to look away. The bodies in these images are either entangled in poses or alone. There is such strong sensual emotion depicted here. For those of us who know the photographs by these two artists from Flickr, this show is even the more remarkable I think. The work we have seen by them is already so stellar and now this. Fantastic work, Senna and Mysterr!
