From 21 May to 22 October 2017 Panorama Mesdag presents the exhibition Comfort Zone: a series of photographs capturing the beauty of imperfection. Seaside visitors caught on camera unawares as they sleep are unrecognisable in these close-ups, shown in all their vulnerability.
The Lithuanian artist Tadao Cern (b. 1983) calls this series Comfort Zone because while none of those portrayed correspond to conventional criteria of ideal beauty, they expose themselves –quite literally –while lying on the beach, frequently clad in the skimpiest of bathing wear. They are entirely within their own comfortzone.
