ASX.TV: Oliver Sieber – “Imaginary Club”

His Private Utopia

“Oliver Sieber is known for his own distinct portraits on the subject of youth- and subcultures as well of blind people and transsexuals. At Galerie Priska Pasquer he shows in an impressive wall installation his “Imaginary Club” in which he incorporates all those people he would like to be close to. In this club Punks, Visus, Mods, Psychobillies and Gothic Lolitas from Los Angeles, New York, Tokyo, Cologne or Schwaebisch Hall encounter each other. These are people who communicate their identities through clearly visible, albeit sometimes difficult to understand, codes – for to distance themselves from the masses and at the same time for to associate themselves with their own group.…Extended and complemented are the protagonists of Oliver Sieber’s series with black and white street scenes, which often appear being not less fantastic, as well as with portraits of friends and acquaintances.…Thus emerges an ideal society for Oliver Sieber, a kind of utopia, in which he feels comfortable.”
