'DOPPELGANGER' BY CORNELIA HEDIGER






This Swiss artist showed her series 'Doppelganger' at Brooklyn's Klompching Gallery back in the fall.  The unusual series of photographs depicts the artist "performing a psychological struggle with her doppelganger": "a ghostly double of a living person, widely understood as a sinister harbinger of bad luck".  

Each image is made up of 6 to 9 individual photos taken from slightly different perspectives, giving the photographs their distortion and voyeuristic feel (the divisions give the viewer the sense of staring through a window pane).  The collage also offers Hediger the chance to be in the images multiple times.
