Photos from exhibition.
The Parallel Worlds Collage Series is a project the author has been creating for over two years. The project is timeless, it has neither beginning nor end, it is always in the process of being created. Through photo collages the artist expresses her hope for a new, different and better world. The artist is hurt by the thought of man’s relationship to the earth, and the future certainly does not seem bright. Nibera creates parallel worlds that inspire hope for a brighter future. Through collages of landscapes, she tries to remind society of what the world was like before man began to destroy it. That is why she also uses analogue photography because with this technique collages get a touch of old. When you look at the photos, you get the sense that they were taken a long time ago. The author shows what the world would be like if humans would respected nature. Collages are a combination of analog photographs taken by Nibera on a photographic film. She creates a world that mirrors ours, but in an alternate reality where man does not interfere with nature. It is important that we speak about the climate in a language that is not always bleak and pernicious. It is very important that we create things that have a positive narrative. Positive visual messages are more stimulating and act as a hopeful destination. Or as the German painter Gerhar Richter once said: ”Art is the highest form of hope”. All photographs are taken by © Nibera with analog camera on 35mm film.
