The staging is an essential part of Michelis work, the moving, dynamic image a constant companion. Using flying garments, she creates fascinating temporary sculptures that celebrate the ephemeral and transitory in a sensually dynamic play. In the new photographs created especially for the exhibition, powerful textiles float before the face of a female figure. Man thrown into the world is vulnerable, at the mercy of finiteness and death.
