Karina-Sirkku Kurz Ungleichgewicht

The central theme in Kurz's artistic work is the human body; the body as a projection screen for expectations, hopes and wishes. UNGLEICHGEWICHT
(imbalance) approaches essential traits of eating disorders. The work is based upon narratives of affected people with whom she collaborated intensively for a lengthy
period of time. The resulting images and extracted quotations are as complex and peculiar as the narratives themselves. This is an expressive, poetic book, which
approaches a concrete and disturbing theme in a sensitive and conceptual manner. Kurz's work on eating disorders has been nominated for numerous prizes, including the Prix Voies Off and Dummy Award Kassel 2015. The work was award-winner of the Vattenfall Photo Prize in co-operation with C/O Berlin and Ungleichgewicht is the winning book of the Nordic Dummy Award 2015. The award is handed out annually by the Fotogalleriet and the Norwegian Association of Fine Art Photographers during the Oslo Photobook Festival.
