The drawing of a woman’s head in profile, the face clearly turned to the left. From the hair combed back over the neck emerges a second face, which is turned to the right. In 1987 Birgit Jürgenssen projected this drawing onto a wall and placed her arms on top of it. The two faces of the projected image and her two arms overlap. Sophie Thun exposed in 2015 photograms of her body onto life-sized self-portraits. In Double Release / autocunnilingus / letting go the profile of a kneeling silhouette sticking out its tongue is superimposed over a self-portrait of the photographer, who is standing and looking directly into the camera. Both figures activate a delayed shutter release and manifest or suggest control over the scene. The kneeling figure licks the belly of the Other.

Using their own bodies as an artistic medium, the two women of different generations explore their role as women and artists and images of themselves and the Other. For this exhibition, Sophie Thun creates a site-specific work.
