Illusionary Dialogue — Heidi Romano
So tomorrow is Saturday and I am in NY. Maybe I recently moved to NY, or better, I am there for a few exciting meetings… So how about a lovely breakfast in my recently discovered cute cafe? To make it more exciting – I will be meeting a friend I havnt seen for eons. Breakfast was fun, but seeing that it is such a stunning autumn morning, we wander around the streets, pop into that cute book shop, buy a present in that second hand shop, everyone says they can never find and decide spontaneously to visit Klompching Gallery, who recently opened an exhibition by Cornelia Hediger. We are intrigued by the details in her images, by the illusionary dialogue. We can easily relate to these images as we all have had moments where “our other” had something to say. It is hard to tell if they are twin sisters, a display of different voices, alter ego exchanges, split personalities, parallel lives, multiple confrontations with ourselves. By the time we leave, we are inspired and our stories multiply. We found a little wine bar around the corner and amongst other things discuss the complex set, an imagined timeline, the attention to lighting and compare the small details we noticed.
