'100 Faces'

Clemens Habicht

Lamington Drive is pleased to present '100 FACES', a solo exhibition of new work by Clemens Habicht. Habicht set himself the illustrative task of finding 100 faces in 100 original black and white photographs gleaned from flea markets in Vietnam and France.

Art Exhibition previously on at Lamington Drive in Victoria, Australia.
From Thursday 03 April 2014 to Sunday 04 May 2014

Each face emerges from a single photo already depicting people with every part of the original image being used in the final construction. Habicht states, “Drawing these faces into existence is willing myself to look beyond what is already there and seeing the image anew. The construction becomes a way to make this revelation apparent to another, and cutting into something already so fascinating and unique is a serious and irreversible mark upon the original. It reveals the process to a viewer and to me is a leap of faith that it’s going to work.” ‘100 FACES’ follows from Clemens’ first solo exhibition at Lamington Drive, ‘100 KITES’, in which birds were collaged onto hand made identical kites, framing the works and giving each bird the real potential of flight.
