I was at the Fabrica patio and the conversation about life and death arose. This conversation has been a constant in Fabrica lately as the work of Ashley Gilbertson is on display in one of the most sociable areas of the building. He has asked us to judge is work, to vote for the most striking and powerful images of his project called Death and Birth.
The conversation was between Pia and Juan and they had their different take on the images. Juan just said “the pictures are cheesy, better said, a bit cheesy.” Then he added that the selection process was a good thing. While Pia, on the other hand, said some of the images are “very memorable.” The photo project by Ashley will be displayed at FABRICA: Les Yeux Ouverts at the Pompidou Centre.
Voting system for the images.
Pia continued to argue: “I like the picture of the old lady, it is the most shocking and disturbing image out of the selection; it is thought-provoking.” Juan thought the best image was the one of the large guy with the child’s coffin. Pia replayed “I like the dark one, the one of the profile of a dead guy in his storage box for the morgue." I personally like the one of the three generations looking into the hole.
The best part of Ashley’s exercise is that he is creating a buzz of his work. The final selection is still to be made and the images are already controversial amongst us. It will be a nice show of very contrasting images, as the subject is by itself: Death and Birth.
