All Exhibitions (A-Z)
Anja Hitzenberger’s work examines the human body in its relations to architecture and space as well as the theme of nourishment and how people eat. The exhibition brings together three series devoted, each in its own way, to food:
The pictures in Chinese Fast Food were taken in a food tent in the former Olympic Park in Beijing: Hitzenberger concentrates on the saturated visual displays of the food stalls and the way the environment contrasts with the boredom of the workers who offer Chinese dishes with names like “Burst Abdomen,” “Twist Potato,” and “Sugar Men.”
The series Pink was created in a diner in New York and shows pink ice cream and other sugar-laden deserts.
98/330lb (44/150kg) is a statement about the perception of physical presence: an overweight man imitates a skinny fashion model’s poses. The title of the photographic series refers to the two models’ body weights.
