Kalt is a visual conversation between the photographic artists Freya Copeland and Youvalle Levy, exploring the existential dread, boredom and isolation experienced in many northern European cities, in particular Berlin. The artists communicate, as if in written correspondence, the longing for their native lands’ warmth and light, while at the same time fighting against their native lands in order to find comfort in their adopted city.
Kalt is the recipient of the Primi Fondacio Sabadell Artslibris prize and has been exhibited in The PhotoBook Exhibition as part of Photo Athens 2019 in the Benaki Museum, Athens, Greece. Kalt is held in many public and private collections including the Sabadell Collection, Barcelona, Spain and Samoa House Library, Auckland, New Zealand.
