TWO IN ONE TWICE TOGETHER
Alexander Alesencov & Elena Melnic
If two than why not?
But if one then where's the second?
Two in one.
In one, yes. Still, where is that without which it is one.
That's not it!
The work done has no continuation, not like that!
Two without is like one.
One just like the other.
This works present an imitation of the Man Ray's
photography Lips on Lips", 1930
30 X 17,5
First made in 1926, by Steichen;
Second - in 1987;
Third, made in 2000 - is mine;
A photo that at the same time is not really a photo. Because if following this photo, Gloria
Swanson should remain Gloria Swanson, but this doesn't happen, because in some years,
Gloria is not the same Gloria, she is already Mariana Swanson in 1987 and Elena
Swanson in 2000.
Behind the face is another face. After a name is another name.
