Cornelia Hediger’s “Doppelgänger”

The “Doppelgänger” Self Portraits series captures Cornelia Hediger‘s multiple personalities: fear, hope, joy, despair, and destruction are but some of the emotions and feelings she explores photographically.

Born in Switzerland, Cornelia Hediger lives and works in NYC. She earned both her BFA and MFA from Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers University.

Her imagery has been presented in exhibitions at Wallspace Gallery in Seattle; Anita S. Wooten Gallery in Orlando; PS122 Gallery in NYC; the International Center of Photography in NYC; Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore, Rutgers University in New Brunswick, and the Massachusetts College of Art. In addition Hediger has shown her work abroad at the Gallery Del Mese-Fischer in Switzerland and Limilight9 Gallery in Halifax, Canada.

Through the series, she explores an internal dialog and struggle which exists between the conscious and the unconscious. The topics, often complex, are captured in rich and lush colors using flower patterns and polka dots, which allow a certain type of humor to take over.

The images are assemblages, made up of six to nine photographs, allowing her to exaggerate and emphasize certain spatial areas. She is both the photographer and the model, acting out several characters within single set. The characters that represent hope and despair, good and bad, past and present, face each other, watching and wondering if the other is trustworthy.

This particular way of photographing allows her to look over her own shoulder and act out internal struggles in the external world.
