Odires Mlászho
Plotina (2/3)
1996/ 2008
Inkjet on Hahnemühle Photo Rag 305 paper
70 x 50 cm

For each work, Mlászho takes an image from Phaidon’s 1945 book Roman Portraits, consisting of fullpage black-and-white photographs of Roman portrait busts, and superimposes cut out eyes from Paul Swiridoff ’s 1960s photographs of German politicians. When printed, the two images lock together almost seamlessly, creating what Surrealist collagist Max Ernst called “a spark of poetry”.
