RAY Echoes: Identity

3 May - 1 Septembre 2024
Fotografie Forum Frankfurt

The fifth edition of the RAY – Triennial of Photography offers numerous exhibitions, events and 3-day Festival in Frankfurt and the Rhine-Main region. The artists of the triennial use photography and related media to explore and reflect on the challenges and tensions of self-perception and human interaction. Their works span the past, present, and future, from the intimate and personal to the collective. By capturing these diverse moments and phenomena, they create an echo that draws the public’s attention to their themes. Similar to a sound experience, they create reverberation that is perceived as an independent event beyond what is depicted. On this basis, RAY ECHOES concentrates on three focal points: identity, memory, and emotion.

Fotografie Forum Frankfurt is showing one of three central exhibitions of the Triennial focussing on the relationship between photography and identity. The exhibited artists of Echoes Identity Mónica Alcázar-Duarte, Joy Gregory, Jürgen Klauke, Dinu Li, and Inuuteq Storch explore the making and breaking away from identities. Echoes are present in the form of reflections on personal experience, transcendence, and the currency of retrospection. Alongside recent contemporary photographs and a video installation, earlier iconographic works are brought back to the fore in times of political polarisation over minorities, culture, and gender.
