2018 „WILL – The Lifesaving Machines“ – Reiner Riedler

 

 

TRIENNALE DER PHOTOGRAPHIE
Eröffnung Mittwoch, 6. Juni 2018, 19 bis 21 Uhr
Ausstellungsdauer bis 7. Juli 2018

The Austrian photographer Reiner Riedler make accessible a taboo topic without depicting any suffering, and without compromising people in difficult circumstances. Propped against a black background and isolated from the context in which they’re used, we get to see clinical instruments in a new light, and get to explore their function, their aesthetics, and their unearthly beauty. From the spaceship-like CT machine to the clunky dialysis machines, this project is a thoughtful meditation on illness and the prolongation of life. It is a visual study of breaking points in medical science and human will.
