NovaF v letu 2016 predstavlja tri avtorice mlajše generacije, Evo Šuštar, Majo Modrinjak in Đejmi Hadrović, ki kažejo izvirna izhodišča za razumevanje že tako kompleksne in mnogostranske problematike, kot je ženski svet. Gledalcu ponujajo realen in dokaj objektivno zaobjet način sporočanja, ki predstavlja večplastno možnost fotografije, da postane dokument časa, eksperimentalni koncept ali medij za domet določene sporočilnosti.

Na eni strani fantazija in nočna mora hkrati, absurdnost strahu, ki nas zapopade v stiku z najmanjšimi bitji na zemlji (Šuštar), na drugi strani žensko telo, ki mu svoboda omogoča to, da je preprosto takšno, kot je (Hadrović). Nekje vmes je imaginarni, a skorajda realno občuten podaljšek ženske, ki predstavlja mobilno intimo (Modrinjak).

Šuštarjeva predstavi svojo diplomsko delo z naslovom Med nami, kombinatorni konstrukt realnega sveta (živali) z imaginarnim (makete prostorov), iz česar nastane fantazijsko dojeta vizualna podoba. Žuželke, ki mnogim ljudem vzbujajo strah, so z optično prevaro na fotografijah predstavljene v nadnaravni velikosti. Nelagodje ustvarja ravno bipolarni občutek, nastal v sobežju oblikovanja interierja, ki je barvit, prijazen, urejen z vsemi detajli, ter živalmi, nastanjenih v njem.

Modrinjakova v seriji z naslovom Obvezna oprema posega po samoumevni ženski realnosti, ki načeloma ostaja prikrita; odstira namreč pogled v ženske torbice. Ideja je nastala na podlagi ključnega trenutka v romanu Ana Karenina, kjer glavna protagonistka stori samomor, a še preden se sama vrže pod vlak, na tir najprej odvrže svojo torbico. Ali je ženska, ki je sita svoje torbice, sita tudi svojega življenja? Anna Johnson, ki jo Modrinjakova citira, pravi, da je dobra ženska torbica kot podaljšek telesa, kot majhna mobilna hiška.

Hadrovićeva v svojem opusu najpogosteje obravnava žensko problematiko. Tokrat se predstavlja s serijo Free the Nipple, v kateri razbija stereotipe o ženskem telesu. Slednje je sicer upodobljeno v motivu akta, a nikakor ne s kakršnimkoli poželjivim predznakom. Serija je pomenljiv dokaz o tem, da je lahko žensko telo lepo, brez da bi ustrezalo trenutnim medijsko izsiljenim idealom, ki so v glavnem nedosegljivi, nerealni in tržno usmerjeni.

In 2016, Nova F (New Slovenian Photography) presents three, younger generation artists–Eva Šuštar, Maja Modrinjak and Đejmi Hadrović–proposing original premises for the treatment of a complex and manifold issue: the world of women. What they offer is a realistic and rather objective form of communication representing photography’s heterogeneous ability to become either a document of a time, or an experimental concept, or a medium to convey a certain message.

At one end of the scale is fantasy and nightmare, encapsulated in the absurd fear one feels in the presence of the smallest creatures on earth (Šuštar). At the other end of the scale is a woman’s body, free to simply be as is (Hadrobvić). And somewhere in between, there is the imaginary, yet almost physically palpable, extension of a woman, representing portable intimacy (Modrinjak).

Šuštar exhibits her graduation project entitled Among Us, a seemingly fantasy-like construct combining the real world (animals) with the imaginary (models of rooms). By means of an optical illusion, the photographs depict enlarged insects–animals that often invoke a feeling of fear. The resulting sense of unease created originates in the bipolarity of the images, juxtaposing the colourful, welcoming and meticulously thought-out interior design with the insects placed there.

In the series Must Haves Modrinjak deals with a self-evident aspect of a woman’s reality that generally remains concealed: offering a glimpse into a woman’s handbag. The idea is based on the key moment in Anna Karenina where the protagonist commits suicide, but just before jumping in front of a train, she flings her handbag onto the rails. Is a woman who is tired of her handbag also tired of her life? Modrinjak cites historian Anna Johnson in saying that a good bag becomes an intimate extension of the body–a small portable home.

In her work, in general, Hadrović deals with issues relating to women. On this occasion, in her series entitled Free the Nipple, she attempts to break down stereotypes about the female body by depicting the nude without lustful undertones. The series is a telling demonstration that the female body can be beautiful without conforming to the latest, largely unattainable, unrealistic, profit-oriented and media-driven body ideals.
