INDRĖ PISKARSKAITĖ HIGH RESOLUTION

SUNDAY, APRIL 29, 4-10 PM


High Resolution is a photography exhibition examining the overlap and discrepancies in perception of the fashion and image from both insider and outsider perspectives. The same model, Indrė Piskarskaitė is captured through the eyes of two different photographers, highlighting her chameleon versatility and the creation of a persona only once coming into contact with lens. These constructs are contrasted with images from behind the scenes and backstage all shot by Indrė herself. These images reveal the process of this creation, as well as give agency back to her, the model, transforming her from mannequin to photographer and curator; contextualizing a physical presence with a personal narrative, giving an identity to an illusion.

The images encapsulate outsiders' impressions of the fashion industry to various degrees:  high standards, high expectations, high demands, high pressure, high definition, high heels, haute couture. Fashion often seems to stand on an elite pedestal, towering, intimidating, omnipresent and yet unreachable. Here it is shown in a panoramic view, only to turn in on itself and give the camera to one of its own subjects.

Can you imagine what it would be like if there were no organizations that support the arts? Think of how your world would change if you suddenly found yourself surrounded only by materialism and inspirational void.
I have committed to fundraising several hundred dollars for Sla307, an organization working tirelessly to provide opportunity to exhibit, inspire and collaborate.
Please join me in celebrating my 10-year anniversary in the modeling industry and help support this organization during our silent auction that will take place during the aforementioned event!
