Ingrid Dorner ​​​​​​​
Ingrid Dorner is a French artist who has lived in her chosen home city of Munich for almost 10 years now. It was on the theatre stage that her artistic skills first found expression.
However, she was then drawn to the darkroom, where she forged ahead with her artistic activities by experimenting on materials and processes. And it was through her mysterious and sometimes provocative photographs - which always express a certain tenderness - that she revealed herself.
Photography enables Ingrid Dorner to present her view of the world, and, as a result, its truth. But this portrayed truth still has to be discovered. It is difficult to grasp, and uncertainty about its true interpretation remains. Observing the images, people become aware of their own fallibility; they cannot be ultimately certain as to the truth of the work. The works of Ingrid Dorner are far more than a direct and immediate portrayal – in them, the artist makes use of provocation, as well as a mirroring effect that brings the beholder’s innermost
thoughts to the surface.
This involuntary psychological introspection is further intensified by the way the images are presented: they fuse together not only past and present but also the beholders’ thoughts and the artist’s truth.
