Artist:
In her photographic work the Portuguese artist Inês d’Orey combines her immediate sense for architectural details and structures with her ability to technically recreate spatial impressions and through the photographic gaze to create poetic and mysterious narratives. Inês’ residency in Aarhus in 2013 in connection with FRESH EYES resulted in a series of evocative images where some of the city’s most recognizable buildings are shown side by side with other more seemingly banal locations. Inês’ images share the quality of being desolate of human presence and she always chooses the least obvious perspective. These artistic interventions result in an original view on the otherwise so familiar city.
