Of Corse — Photographs

Kulturstiftung Basel H. Geiger | KBH.G
Until February 12

In September 2021, photographer Chantal Convertini rented a house in Corsica and invited eight colleagues whom, until then, she had known only via Instagram, to join her for a project. The experiment transformed itself into a minor miracle, as the group bonded not only on the photographic level but also as human beings. Hundreds of photographs were taken in the space of a few days, including self-portraits, nudes, group pictures, details, and landscapes. Much emerged out of the moment and the mood; and the photos also show the mutual trust growing with each passing day.

The exhibition’s title “Of Corse” is not just a wordplay. It is a reference to the place where those magical photographic moments originated, but also to the natural way in which the photographs came about. Initially, there were no plans to show these sometimes very intimate photos in an exhibition.

Entrance is free.
