Lena Rosa Händle SIGNED COPY: Laughing Inverts

The phenomenon of laughter, like this artist's book, is characterized by variety. The diversity of photographic approaches manifested in the dialog between these images reveals different facets of identity, relationships, and social movements. Momentary scenes arise in the mix of imagery, forming idiosyncratic orders. Found signs and traces are articulated in movement, masquerade, and glamor. Visual shifts, reversals, and reinterpretations invert societal norms and conventions. Browsing through these pages, a flow of images emerges that follows its own inner rhythm, united by the expressiveness of laughter as communication, gesture, grimace, or threat. Lena Rosa Händle deals in her art with queer feminist discourses that are linked for example with sociopolitical movements, engage critically with contemporary behaviors and seek out utopian potentials. Händle is an artistic research assistant at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna. Laughing Inverts has been shown at venues including C/O Berlin, HGB Leipzig, Spinnerei Leipzig and during the Vienna Photobook Festival at Galerie Ostlicht in Vienna. The book received funding from the Austrian Federal Chancellery (Ministry of Art, Culture and Education), the Culture Foundation of the Free State of Saxony and the Society of Friends of the Visual Arts.
