Alina Frieske works at the intersection of photography and painting. Using collected images, she explores the dynamics between abstraction and identification.
For the ING Talent Award 2021 Frieske made the work Second Passage. This collage was put together from Google Street View images of people on a riverside. Using pictures taken at different times and from different angles, it constructs a new reality. By examining how we perceive the individual in a digital environment where data is tracked and extracted, it questions whether images can remain resilient and recognisable in the flood of information.
