‘Invisible Pole’ reverses the typical approach in advertising, depicting professional models, beautiful faces & perfect bodies, by photographing individuals who are yet professional pole dancers but “regular” girls at the same time.

Additionally, this reversed approach is intensified by creating a sculptural feel to it. Heads, hands, feet as well as the dancing pole itself are removed, leaving nothing but hollow pieces of fabric, floating in an undefined space.
The colourful and flashy fashion, lit against the black backdrop, is merely a visual accompaniment intensifying the impact.

Dancers: Mela & Petra, Photography: Marc Lins, Retouching: Nikolaus Gohm

‘Frame Sculptures’  is an ongoing series of works whereof different thread-materials, including natural as well as inorganic fibres, are applied onto metal frames which are equipped with fine-thread machine-bolts, variable in number, length and diameter. Each frame is individual in terms of size, shape and surface-finishing. Besides some minor basic colour-corrections, these works are to be considered 100% analog.

This series exhibits nine out of fourteen patterns from the series ‘Frame Sculptures – Body Scans’. ‘Body Scans’ is one of the by-products of the series Frame Sculptures (http://marclins.com/art).

By projecting the photographs onto bare skin, special effects are created through the various patterns on a 3D-surface, such as in this case, the female body.

The intention wasn’t to produce pictures of ever so perfect models, but to rather focus on the visual impact, in addition to underlining the beauty and imperfection to be found simultaneously with any human body.
