Schall & Schnabel – Skinwalker


Schall & Schnabel presents SKINWALKER, a collaborative, multi-disciplinary project by photographers Pierre Horn and Eileen Huhn (the founding duo of Schall & Schnabel) and painter Diana Wehmeier. Referencing the traditional concept of “skinwalkers,” which are humans said to have the ability to transform into other creatures, the dancers and models featured in SKINWALKER are painted as they move through space to slowly become one with the painting.

The resulting photographs of this transformation capture a sense of “posthumanity” in the modern age—to be composed of layer upon layer, as our interactions with others, along with our very beings, are further digitalized and synthesized.

SKINWALKER is now on view at Galerie Irrgang in Berlin. The exhibition will culminate in a performance on September 5, 2014 @ 8 p.m.
