Angels no longer have it especially easy in these our parts.
Perhaps one has to travel to distant venues in order to rediscover
them in a new form. To the artist Bärbel Starz, these winged
envoys on their pilgrimage to Malaysia were resurrected as
primary interreligious symbols of peace.
For in all confessions of faith, the figure of the angel embodies the
hope of lifelong companionship, protection and mediation on the
journey to the divine. In a country with an incredibly multifaceted
spiritual culture and a not always tension- free parallel evolution of
Muslims, Buddhists, Hindus, Taoists, Sikhs and Christians, there
yet exists the possibility of a dialogue and mutual understanding.
The paradisaical-like photographs by Bärbel Starz show people of
all ethnicities and all faiths in sumptuous tropical gardens, beside
reflecting watery landscapes or endless beaches.
They are contemplative rear-view figures, each turned towards the
practice of their own belief, yet, in all their disparity, following a
common, universal path.
