Points of View

As mosaics seem the monumental murals of "Points of View", which Helzle developed in cooperation with the photographer Luca Siermann. They are also portraits. The body views of the models are created using 360-degree photography, body height divided into nine sections, each level arising in the orbit of the body nine shots at intervals of 40 degrees. The model stands on a turntable, the results are each 81 individual shots. With the changing views Helzle is released from the fixed viewer's position and shows polyvalent perspectives simultaneously. The body loses its firm outline, its volume is redesigned from single images and summarized prism-like. In free rhythms, the artist compresses the fragments to kaleidoscopic compositions to make the attitude and character of the model visible in striking anti-Portraits.
