For MASA BERLIN Berlin based artist Ofri Lapid (*1983) created a display, a part of a larger body of works, which concerns the Amazon region as a terrain for entanglements of myth in history. Through a nonchronological observation of historical documents and objects, she exposes the bipolar character of Western material culture.
Mythographs makes a special use of the historic wet plate collodion photographic technique, to create ambrotypes, hybrid images of positive and negative on glass.
* MASA was founded by Vahit Tuna in Istanbul and MASA Berlin was initiated by Isabel Schmiga and Sandra Teitge. MASA − meaning table in Turkish − is a mobile space itself, hosting each time another artist. MASA aims to compose an area for the artist to play with.
