Blue. Deep and distant. Sky and sea. Longing and courage. Dream and infinity. Especially in times of uncertainty, it is the great, essential and exciting challenge to find comfort in a sense of confidence – confidence in the unknown. Is it possible to entrust one‘s whole being to this indefinable vastness? Myrta Köhler explores this question in her cyanotypes. To do so, she positions her body on individually prepared paper, which she exposes to the sun for a period of up to one hour. The „photography in slow motion“ creates images of weightlessness, which is only made possible by relinquishing control: during the process of creation, the artist surrenders herself to time, light, water and, not least, to chance.
