Installation view Four Finger Formation (right hand+left hand), 2017, archival inkjet prints, 4x 70x50 cm each hand
Hadas Satt's "Four Finger Formation" is a new photo installation that follows a four-aircraft flight formation used by fighter planes. The photos arranged in this harmonious but deadly constellation take us back to an era of pre-reflex camera, referencing the all too familiar accidents found in our family albums - human fingers jutting into the perfect frames of vacation photos and childhood achievements. In Satt's work, the finger is in the photo (intruding on serene animal life) and is also the photo itself.
