Ata Omerbašić “Faces”

Internet Cafe (Sarajevo)
August 22 – September 20, 1998


The most dynamic part of the body – the face – is subject to constant changes, but it always retains the same physiognomic characteristics. Variations of the face using contrast (positive-negative, colors, mirror image) show different  faces hidden behind the everyday mask – “beyond the mirror of the soul”. Seven panels are set in the garden of the Internet Café and they create a partially transparent wall, separating the space of the garden from the main city street. Each panel consists of a wooden frame and transparent foil with the variations of “portraits”.
