The Violinist

photographed by MARIO SORRENTI
collages by RITA ACKERMANN 


First, photographer Mario Sorrenti worked with stylist Camilla Nickerson, developing a fashion story about the futuristic decomposition of bodies in motion. Then, Hungarian artist Rita Ackermann appropriated Mario’s pictures and created large 3-D collages and paintings which she set between plexiglass panels. This is more than just a fashion shoot or a collaboration : the lines between artwork and photography are blurred and readjusted in a startling new way.
