Dialogues between body(s) and space(s) with Tjaša Kalkan
The Dialogues series is an attempt in exercising freedom in public space. Guided by the subjective experience of restrictions, imposed on the physical and psychological behavior in everyday life, Tjasa Kalkan is recreating quotidian urban landscapes by photographing a female body which performs in relation to random passersby.
The body gestures are inspired by child behavior, as a way of increasing disobedience, curiosity, play, or simply relaxation, hence producing various body experiences, which in turn question our habits and social norms. Through these actions Tjasa Kalkan is creating potential dialogues between body(s) and space(s), in order to defamiliarize our ways of seeing and using the body.
