Doppel Ganger by Fumino Hora August 1, 2008, Filmmakers Galleries

Filmmakers Galleries will present a new site-specific photography installation, Doppel Ganger by Fumino Hora, on view from August 1 through September 14, 2008.
An opening reception will be held on Friday, August 1 from 5:30 - 8:00pm. It is free and open to the public.
The installation consists of photographic transfers on fabric and paper, digital prints, laser-cuts, etchings and sculpture. Hora feels that the costume acts as an inquiry into the identity or existence of the “doppel ganger,” a German term for second self, or ghostly double. Transparency and emptiness are important elements of this identity, echoing its invisible nature. While many understand this concept as a kind of psychological alter ego, Hora says an additional interpretation is more of a spiritual one. In her native country of Japan, it’s believed that “spirits possess extraordinary power,” she explains. “Their existence is beyond the tangible world.” For more about Fumino Hora, visit
