Monika K. Adler is an acclaimed photographer and avant-garde filmmaker, known for her challenging and provocative photography and experimental films. Her works have shown in hundreds of film festivals, art museums and galleries worldwide. Adler’s upcoming feature film, Sick Bacchus, tells a story of pathological consumption amongst London’s wealthy elite.
The photography series ‘The Truth’ is a reflection on life in quarantine and subtle encounters with death during the Covid-19 pandemic. The emptiness of isolation becomes a mirror for the entire world; one in which we’re blind and helpless. Who have we become in our isolated apartments? Our society atomized, living together but apart. In many religions, the truth comes from the dismemberment: the stripping of ego from identity, leads to understanding of what is important in life. The pandemic cut through many of our existing ideas of what we value and how we think about ourselves; who we are, and who we are becoming.
