Stefanie Wolff: Identity in Flux

Photographer, Educator from Argentina

Introducing SomoS Artist-in-Residence Stefanie Wolff

SomoS is pleased to introduce Argentinian photographer Stefanie Wolff who takes part in SomoS’ Artist-in-Residency program for the duration of three months from September to November.

Stefanie’s previous photographic essay, titled Heimat, grapples with both exploring and solidifying the dualities of her identity as a woman raised and immersed in Latin American culture with an acute awareness of her familial ties to Germany.

Each instance in my project connected these two intertwined worlds: Germany-Argentina; Argentina-Germany. The experience started reformulating the essence of the project and the reality of its conception. There was a crush.
This breakdown made me investigate the threads that connect the time of my grandfather, my parents and me. All times and spaces that have fluctuated in the intrinsic connection between two countries, two cultures and an ocean of doubts and questions in the middle. The work aims to find the natural connection between the links beneath us, our personal memory.

Stefanie Wolff , Artist’s Statement

During her residency at SomoS, Stefanie will compose and curate another photographic essay which will utilize this intimate immersion in German culture as the basis upon which she aims to achieve an identity ‘catharsis.’

The exhibition of Stefanie’s Berlin work will take place from 7 to 11 November 2017 at SomoS Art House.
