Elin Mack usually works with collage based on materials she finds in the city, on streets and subway station walls. In this project, she has photographed details of the walls she usually «steals» raw materials from. The photographs, of urban walls with their remains of partially torn-down posters, have evolved into a separate art project, where the photographs are in dialogue with the collages.
Elin has photographed in several cities around Europe and in Norway. The photographs tell stories about the layers of time on city walls, with their traces of old posters, concrete and graffiti. At the same time, they are snapshots. The next day someone has torn down the posters, tagged them or maybe pasted new ones.
The photos show the lyricism in the raw, torn and perishable: Urban poetry in motion.
