TORN – CRIMER
Feeling torn is a strong visceral reaction to the forceful differences between "is" and "ought (not)". It precedes decisions of change, and traps us in a liminal state of uncertainty and discomfort.
In this chapter the artist from St. Gallen is photographed by the upcoming photographer Binta Kopp, and together with Team YVY, an androgynous persona was created. Rendered in extravagant over-exposure that dedramatizes conflicts, the sum of Crimer's divergent appearances playfully dismantles cliches conceptions of some binary notions the world is based on.
The persona created is featured to masquerade interchanging roles of the holy and the devil, and mischievously pose as a demon or a demon in a boy's disguise.
While one can loosely detect the visual heritage of gothic or glam rock here, the deliberate choice of YVY's white closet instils a softened tone.
