SEASON OF ADMIN - FRANKFURT ELEGIES (2008-2015)
Subtle, uncanny and at the same time perceptive – the photographs of Silja Yvette (*1986) »evoke associations ranging from ironic reflection to elegiac allusion, from the fragility of being to a certain longing for the elementary« (Annekathrin Müller, Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation).
At the origin of »Season of Admin« is an unease regarding any socially organised and administered relationship to nature and things. The images deal with issues related to the self-description of a subject that considers itself autonomous and on the other hand with the agency of things, assuming an understanding of hybrid forms of actions. What emerges is an ironic game that hovers between traces of uncanny moments and of disintegrating assertions.
