A collaboration between Fette Sans, Sasha Frere-Jones, Charlotte Shane, Jennifer Fuchs, Tommy Smith, and Leah Dieterich.
Please join us for the opening: Friday, June 22nd at from 7 pm to 10 pm.
INFERNOESQUE, Heidestrasse 46-52, Berlin.
The show will then be up Saturday and Sunday from 12 pm to 6 pm.
The exercise began when Berlin based photographer Fette Sans sent out a series of five photographs to five writers working with the English language and based internationally. Each invitee had to commence a text inspired by the images. When the writers were partially finished with their texts they sent them to Sans who, based on these words, then sent five new photographs to each writer to inspire the rest of their story.
At Infernoesque, each text will be presented alongside the ten photographs. A book compiling the five collaborations with a forward by Andrew Berardini will be also available to peruse.

An Abbreviated List of Selected Images:
With soiled eyes and fingered heart tattoo, a beauty folds into faux-leopard fur
A naked basketball court, a sheathed building
A sad platter of varied pastry
Stacked pictures on a chipped floor
A Gallic nosed and gray-shirted youth, face yet unbroken, neck taut
Remnants of room service dead on a friendless carpet
A trophy, an alley, black trash bags crumpled like discarded fetish skins
A flopping cock; hetero fingers interlaced, tautly gripped
An oversized painting on a concrete street
The distant circus
Some crumpled couple bridging
Her kitchened laughter, a nude body covered only with oven mitts
The perfect bouquet
A gray-haired man offering his arms, tattoo for appraisal
A rocky shore
That shrouded chair
Two bodies on the edge of water, infinity
