CLAUDIA ROGGE

(Düsseldorf , Germany, 1968)
In the first phase of her work, the german artist portrays men, women , children, through digital processing , multiply endlessly . The individual becomes a mass raise pure aesthetic value , without any ideological intent .
The Uniform series consists of approximately 10,000 single shots digitally processed and enriched written , tattoos , masks and uniforms. As in the previous series Rapport , the faces remain expressionless , dehumanized and yet the beauty of the bodies immediately jumps to the eyes. The series is inspired Uniform text ” The Everyday Life ” by Erving Goffman , social theorist who defined life as a theater.
The large format of the new series EverAfter inspired by the ” Divine Comedy” by Dante and represent the classical realms of the Inferno , Purgatory and Paradise .
In a sense contemporary particular influence has also had the play of Romeo Castellucci , who said: ” Hell, Purgatory and Paradise are a universal experience that is not only behind us but it is strongly present .” At first glance , these photographs seem to recreate their baroque paintings , but looking more closely, you discover disturbing details , as part of sodomy and perversion.
Both in form and content of the works raise contemporary issues , as regards the form are refuted the purpose and capabilities of the elegiac images without the religious use of the time and, with regard to the content, they call into question our faith in Western society increasingly secularized . A society which, in turn , is compared with the fear that comes from religion .
With her new series ( Lost in Paradise ) , Claudia Rogge calls into question the established dualism between good and evil, and set the value of our acts not only in this world, but also in a possible afterlife.
