Ruins adorned with black and yellow warning ribbons, taking on strange anthropomorphic traits, a swarm of birds circling in fairytale surroundings in front of a futuristic tower, an abandoned desk under a glass cube that seems to fluoresce in the middle of a park.

The sources of Hinda Weiss' Frankfurt Notes are real through and through, yet the atmospheric images at the same time border on the fantastic, revealing a sometimes surreal, sometimes playfully absurd quality. The photo and video works were taken during a 3-month stay in Frankfurt while walking, searching and discovering. The city appears strangely unreal through the camera of the wandering visitor. Sometimes completely without, sometimes with only gentle digital interventions, Hinda Weiss lets her images balance on the border between fiction and reality without dissolving their state of suspension.

Hinda Weiss is a photographer and video artist based in Tel Aviv and New York. She holds an MFA from Columbia University and has received numerous awards, prizes and scholarships, including the Artis Exhibition Grant and the Outset Contemporary Young International Artist Prize. Her last two solo exhibitions were at Ludlow 38 in New York and at the Herzliya Museum of Contemporary Art in Israel.

The exhibition takes place in cooperation with the Jewish Culture Weeks 2019 and at the same time concludes Hinda Weiss' AIR_Frankfurt residence in partnership with ARTPORT in Tel Aviv.
