[crowdsourced] ghosts of a former self (2013) Silicone, Stop-motion camera

The two sculptures are silicone casts made from Posch's most recent sculptures part of (crowdsourced) NOIR / Love Beyond Recognition in which the artist cast body-parts from a multitude of Gothenburg based persons of varying age and background that were assembled into one female and one male figure - the average Gothenburg inhabitant. The work is a continuation of Posch's interest in the body in contemporary art and how it might be possible to revisit the thoughts of it as 'cosmografia del minor mondo' where if not the workings of the human body but our relation to it, to be an analogy for the workings of maybe not the universe but our present society. In this new piece the time-lapse camera stands-in for the live web video stream the artist usually utilizes part of her sculptural work - the documentation to be exhibited at a later time.

Josefina Posch returned to her birth city Gothenburg in 2007 where she is now based. She has shown her projects internationally from a recent solo show at Gallery 54 in Gothenburg, Sweden to China, the U.K and the U.S via Italy where she created an 8m inflated rubber iceberg for the 'Migration Addicts' public interventions at the 52nd Venice Biennale. She has been an artist-in-residences at Sculpturespace NY, Fondazione Pistoletto, Biella, IT and Duolun MoMA, Shanghai and her work?has been featured in magazines, on TV and on the Radio.?
