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.
