BPM 2020/1: Minbizia – Olatz Vázquez

May 8, 7 pm
Bioskop Balkan
Braće Jugovića 16, Belgrade

Curated by David Pujadó

Olatz is a photographer, a journalist, a woman, born in 1994 in Bilbao. Journalist by trade and photographer by necessity.
From the beginning she has based her work on her body, her soul, the woman who hides within her skin.
Her self portraits have a subtle delicacy, but also contain a sensuality worthy of photographers such as Edward Weston, the Flowers of Robert Mapplethorpe, the work of Japanese photographer Masao Yamamoto and the simplicity and minimalism of Noel Oszvald.
Come 2020, her life and her work are knocked sideways from their natural flow and all that subtlety, delicacy, sensuality, simplicity and minimalism have been infused with an added hardness, a hardness that I can only imagine is like swallowing broken glass, something that could bring us closer to the work of the Norwegian Lene Marie Fossen. This work has a name, the first and last name being Cancer.
