Vernissage – Smoking Birds

Musical opening of the photography exhibition by Moena Weiss

"As if I were still myself, only more sensual ..."

The vernissage will open the Smoking Birds exhibition. Everyone is warmly invited to enjoy champagne and seltzer and great music in the presence of the artist to get a first glimpse of the exhibition and to converse with the participants.

The on-going project "Smoking Birds" is a collection of portraits that show the transformation process of an individual/drag character. Moena Weiss conveys in the photographs the uniqueness and beauty inherent in different biographies and experiences. She wants the people she portrays to see what she sees through the lens of her camera when those portrayed look at her image. She is fascinated by the different facets of people and how photography can capture the way a person exists, moves and feels. Sharing this process is one of the most beautiful things for her, after all, we all want to be seen by others for who we are.

Moena Joy- Dada Weiss is a student of psychology as well as a graduate of the Neue Schule für Fotografie Berlin since 2019 and co-founder of the photo collective _Innen. Since 2018 various participations in group exhibitions: e.g. at the Harvey Milk Photography Center & LGBTQ+A Community Center in San Francisco, the Neue Schule für Fotografie and the Ori Forum for Artistic Visual Media. In December 2021, "Smoking Birds" was shown as a solo show and in April 2022 at Studio 185 at Bikini Berlin as part of the group show "Identity", as well as for Pride Month 2022 also at Galerie SLP. It is also on the short list of the Athens Photo Festival 2022.

Music:Zona_Interdunar is a live techno project born out of the random encounter of Nils Haack and Matteo Giomi. The music overlays elements of jazz, noise, and metal to obsessive rythmical structures. Monolitic beats are bridged together by improvisations adding an element of raw danger and aggression to the mix.
