With this project, Sofia Dalamagka continues the tradition of Hannah Höch, Dora Marr, Martha Rosler, and Barbara Kruger, women artists known for photomontages that invite close inspection and reward our later, deeper reflection. Rather than polemical agitprop, Dalamagka’s feminist art concerns personal politics, the power struggles within four walls, and the tension, violence, and the particular mysteries of life in a family, life in the world. Her images are constructed, in part, from forgotten mementos, torn, erased, burned, and discarded prints and postcards. The artist combines this unlikely source material into dark concoctions of seemingly randomly assembled fragments that she resolves into compositions that always mean much more than the sum of their parts. Similarly, her poetic concordant comments about each photograph, brief clippings from life and literature, add texture to the experience of each image and of the series.
