Thirty-Two Kilos (Zweiunddreißig Kilo)

Through March 6

Ivonne Thein has created 14 large-format photographs of alarmingly stick-like, elegant young women in scant, silvery clothing, their faces obscured by well-tended hair, assuming near-contortionist mock-fashion poses on a floor. The artist's digital manipulation exaggerates the effect. FotoGalerie, the Goethe-Institut's newly-defined exhibition space, brings young German photography to the Washington arts scene.
