Michela Palermo | My Broken World

“On November 23rd 1980 at 7.34 P.M. the earth shook for ninety seconds in the Irpinia valley, an area of the Campania region in Italy. Ninety seconds to kill 2.998 people, tear the house away to 280.000, change the geography of the lands and produce illusions that where rapidly deluded: the area, among the poorest in southern Italy, saw suddenly interrupted the already difficult process of development. More than thirty years after the event that marked a “before” and “after” in the south of Italy’s history, Michela Palermo chose to weave her personal story with that of this land.

My Broken World (2011) is a tale told through images of a world that has crushed into pieces, of a land crossed by deep cracks and unsewn tears, of the suspended lives of who was stuck in a motionless time.
My Broken World is a view on the unexpected results of an earthquake that shook the earth like a revolution: broadening horizons, liberating energies, creating new networks, discussing certainties. Continue Reading →

Ruth Dudley-Carr | The Heads

My work is a visual diary, exploring historical events and memories, mixed with fictionalized stories. The body of work I present you, titled “The Heads”, is an opportunity for the viewer to wander through my psyche, using mirrors, reflections, and at times seeming aquatic, in an attempt to lead the viewer down a path that is ultimately their own.

Collin Avery | Remain Calm

My photographs are about a particular process of observation which I acquired during adolescence. As a child, I was afraid of confrontation, so as a way to escape difficult mental and physical situations I had designated hiding zones located throughout the house and yard where I could disappear.

Max Ferguson | Painting My Father

Moses is described in the Torah as the most modest man who ever lived. My father was the second most. He thought of himself, and wanted others to think of him, as simply ordinary. Perhaps that inspired me to often depict him as Everyman.” — Max Ferguson

These paintings will be part of a Max Ferguson’s 13th solo exhibition, Painting My Father, at the Hebrew Union College Museum in Greenwich Village, One West 4th Street, NYC from April 16 – June 29, 2012. Continue Reading →

Bruce Davidson | Subway

17 March – 20 May 2012
C/O Berlin

“The people in the subway, their flesh juxtaposed against the graffiti, the penetrating effect of the strobe light itself, and even the hollow darkness of the tunnels, inspired an aesthetic that goes unnoticed by passengers who are trapped underground, hiding behind masks, and closed off from each other.” – Bruce Davidson
