_lesque

2014 – 2016

As soon as the curtain opens, one steps into a world filled with erotic, humor and frivolity. Fascinating tropical birds step on to the Burlesque-stage in opulent costumes. In the situate pictures, sparkling colors and light-shade contrasts come together and the series _lesque captures the unique atmosphere of this scene. The portraits stands in contrast to this: photographed with flash in the backstage-areas they give the series moments of tranquility. These reveal the supposedly untouchable 'stars' of the stage, that have fallen out of time, in moments when for them also the curtain falls.

In a society, in which social and sexual roles are determined, burlesque crosses all boundaries, it plays with taboos and stands for a liberated approach to body and identity.
