Longing & Belonging
„Ina Otzko is a Norwegian artist who travels the world to explore the differences between cultures, and to observe the manifold practices and beliefs of human nature. In her art, she expresses both an intuitive and rational curiosity, in which her search for reasoned belief challenges her integrity to feel. The resulting tensions that emerge are exemplified by her ongoing series of photographs, INTERIORS.
In her solo exhibition at the recently opened Ingo Seufert Gallery, Munich, Otzko has se-lected three groups of images from these series, taken in India and Italy. Her focus is to expose facets resulting from the conflictual urges of Belonging and Longing that are within each of us. This struggle is an inevitable jolt of life, since the human soul seems to require a comfort of Belonging, which runs contrary to its Longing to surpass itself, to go beyond its existing experiences.“ (Text: Georgina Turner, 1/10/2014)
