45cbm: Zora Mann




  • Zora Mann


  • Imke Kannegießer

The work of Zora Mann (*1979, lives and works in Berlin) addresses questions of origin and identity, examining different facets of culture by asking: What could culture be and how does it communicate? Her often colorful works appear culturally coded with folkloric symbolism, yet the ornaments predominantly arise from her imagination, childhood memories and dreams, influenced by elements of tribal art, science-fiction and pop; thus overcoming any clear pattern or reading.

The exhibition Doppelgänger brings together three works that lead the viewer along the border between perception and recognition, where the self and the other fall into one another, or where the object of attention can equally become the subject. And vice versa.
