Autoduck, a collaborative project by the photographer Lukas Gansterer and the painter Clemens Wolf, pursues the myth of the superhero. For more than three years, Gansterer shadowed Wolf and his alter ego, a golden duck mask, as they travelled the world. Gansterer's analogue photographs include posed situations as well as snapshot-like portraits and landscapes, capturing brief moments in a tenuous immortality.Given the distinctly provocative touch of the pictures, the viewer can never be sure what is reality and what is staged. The mask that is the constant in the Autoduck series seems to suppress all emotion, and yet, despite its unchanging expression, it conveys a wide variety of moods. With an essay by Christoph Amend.
