Details

Evelyn Schlag and Gerd Ludwig were invited by the Festival La Gacilly-Baden Photo 2018 to interpret the exhibitions as artists in residence. They had completely free rein in their artistic expression. They used this freedom in a creative way and have created a poetically visual, highly personal monument to the festival. Gerd Ludwig’s pictures capture the special atmosphere of a whole town transforming itself for four months into an open-air gallery. They show the enthusiasm of the visitors and the subtle design of the exhibitions in public spaces. Evelyn Schlag’s poems reflect and interpret the themes of the exhibitions in an imaginative literary form.

Poem for the picture Brazzaville and its Sapeurs by Baudouin Mouanda

La Sapologie

Sape la Société des
Ambianceurs et des
Personnes Elégantes
ist die Gesellschaft für das
Feiern und die Eleganz.

Manieren, Eleganz und
Liebe zum Detail sind
unser code d’honneur.
Wir tragen keine Waffen,
posieren nicht für Politik.

Friedlich ist der Wettkampf,
den wir pflegen – flash flash
mein Etikett, flash flash das
deine – und kein Schweiß
in den designten Achseln.
