_LEDA AND THE SWAN
Esther van Waalwijk works together with Hanneke Wetzer for the project Leda and the Swan.
The work is a free interpretation of the equally named Greek myth.
In this project, pictures taken from van Waalwijk’s antique camera, face a photographic mosaic of snapshots taken with an iPhone of the performance 'walking the swan'.
Also the chosen setting brings contrasts; the silence of the portrait studio against the tumultuous surroundings of the city Eindhoven.
Details about ‘Leda and the Swan’:
Triptych made with antique camera, negatives on photopaper, printed on Hahnemuhle fine art paper.
Mosaic including 100 iPhone pictures with Instagram App, of the performance with Hanneke ‘walking the swan’ in Eindhoven city centre.
