Grand Opening + Duo Exhibition

Sabrina Weniger »Jasmine the lovebird«

Aperture Film Lab invites all photographers and analog lovers to a special duo exhibition to celebrate the opening of a new film lab in Charlottenburg.

Aperture Film Lab is a professional film laboratory run by photographers for photographers. Advocates of film photography, we want to create a meeting point for the analog community in Berlin, a place to discover, become inspired, to exchange experiences, learn and improve skills.

We will celebrate analog photography by presenting the works of Sabrina Weniger and Ian Wainaina.

Sabrina Weniger
»Jasmine the lovebird«

We walk a bit with Chieh: we accompany her, then him. In 2016 the portrait project about the journey of a young woman deciding for a decisive change in her life, starts. Alongside family, friends, colleagues, professionals and acquaintances, we are allowed to take part again and again in the formal preparations of gender reassignment surgery in order to become a trans man and the inner processes that occupy Chieh during this time. A lot has happened since then: ideals have met real hurdles, first love has led Chieh to self-love, and the desire to be perceived as a man on the outside has given way to an awareness that there might be more to us than our body. The project Jasmine the lovebird meets Chieh at a stop-over in his still continual journey. We learn: The other tells us who we are. And who we are is a tug of war between being and becoming. Chieh shares with us his view on loneliness, togetherness, happiness and the society we live in. We share and show what we see and hear.

Ian Wainaina
»Synergy«: a whole greater than the sum of its individual parts

Ian Wainaina is a Kenyan visual artist based in Berlin. He creates narratives rooted in capturing his experiences growing up in a majority black society versus the majority white society he has lived in for the past seven years. His work employs a calculated use of abstraction, materiality and experimentation both within and without the camera, in a way that invites new and unpredictable cycles of thoughts and associations within the viewer. By inducing the viewer to be a co-author, his works aim to convey an essence shaped by the viewer’s experiences, over and above just the aesthetic beauty of the scene or the subjects within.

We believe that it is important to showcase the work of analog photographers, either emerging artists or well established professionals. Our gallery regularly hosts small exhibitions to promote young talent and to connect them with the broader audience. Contact us if you want to exhibit your work (the next exhibition will take place in August 2022).
