Ela Mergels is concerned with her artistic work with being-human beings and their forms of life.
In reference to architecture, advertising, fashion, and the exploration of mythologies, sociology, philosophy,
Politics and psychology, deep - rooted works are created with the modern language of photography.
In a subversive way, she moves between black-and-white positions and plays the keyboard of the gray tones -
no matter what topic it is: transgender, geographical boundaries and cross-border social transitions, advertising
And modern forms of life or urbanity. Image-linguistically, and with enough freedom, she leads the viewer through
The complexity of modern times. It thus establishes links and bridges between our great political and social questions
and invites the audience to question and reflect.
