Born 1983 in Berlin Neukölln, Aline Mauch grew up in Passau, a small town in Lower Bavaria.
After studying graphic design in Passau, and performing arts in Montpellier, she has returned to Berlin and here she brings a sharp eye for aesthetics and performance to photography, the medium in which her artistic vision and expression feel at home.
For Mauch, the primary function of fictional space is to address the searching questions social conscience asks. She sees every frame in her work like a forum, where individual selves and viewpoints may resolve or dissolve into masks;
What gives her work its authentic, distinctive edge is that her interior journey of self-examination informs each visible shape and vibrant nuance of the stories she tells.
We are invited to recollect with her a space of belonging, that may become our own, and the borders we must create or circumvent to arrive there. These borders may be mountains, hard to cross, or the dialects we learn to live with, or the momentary walls of days and seasons that converge around us.
We are drawn into portaits of lives other than our own. The foreign land appears almost familiar.
The ego of secure identity is made suddenly, fruitfully strange.
