Sexuality, spirituality and physicality: with radical openness, Ulrich Seidl portrays the lonely in his cinematic trilogy 'Paradise'. An exhibition with 60 stills from the film will be showing at the C/O in Berlin from 19 January to 17 March 2013.
'Paradise' is about three women in one family, who all seek to satisfy their deepest longings in different ways: the mother as a sex tourist, her sister as a catholic missionary, and the daughter as a teenager at a diet camp. The director portrays the bodies of the protagonists in intimate photographic tableaus. The reduced images are aesthetically orchestrated right down to the last detail, forming a strong contrast to the often vulgar motifs. The resulting photographs unite voyeurism and compassion, tragedy and comedy.
