Isabell Heimerdinger


Pose (from Markus to Markus & Nikki to Anne), 2005
(30 prints from polaroid pictures)
10,5 x 10,8 x 1,5 cm
Edition of 500

The artist book from 2005, originally published in an edition of 500 copies, consists of a booklet with 30 prints showing a playful series of photographs. Heimerdinger asked a person to assume a certain posture and then photographed him or her. The resulting instant image was shown to another person who was then to copy the pose. This resulted in a series of 30 photographs, which are summarised in this edition. The portraits show a constant change, which is similar to the well-known children’s game Chinese whispers and shows how guidelines are implemented by different people and result in an almost film-like compendium.
