Polixeni Papapetrou | Lost Psyche

Opening: Wednesday 29 October 6-8pm
Exhibition: 29 October to 29 November 2014
Stills Gallery Sydney, Australia

Press release by Stills Gallery:
In Lost Psyche, Polixeni Papapetrou portrays emblematic figures that have come to the end of their tradition, their rationale, their place in the world. These intriguing and charismatic characters—the poet, the tourist, the immigrant, among others—bring to life antique Victorian paper masks. Yet, despite being cast beyond our immediate reality, their costumes harking back to earlier times, their settings to fantastical places, these archetypal figures live on in the cultural imagination.

Galerie Ori: Constanze Kratzsch | Fiction

Die Künstlerin Constanze Kratzsch hinterfragt in ihrer Arbeit „Fiction“ die Auswirkungen der Genmanipulation an Lebewesen und der Biotechnologie, die an der Erfindung des Kyborg forscht, einem Mischwesen aus lebendigem Organimus und Maschine. Dabei bedient sie sich fabelartigen Wesen, die wie Drohnen im menschenleeren sterilen Architekturraum umher schweben. Continue Reading →

Galerie Franzkowiak | ÜBERGANG. ERINNERUNG

Die Galerie Franzkowiak präsentiert anlässlich des 1. Monats der Fotografie OFF in Berlin die Gruppenausstellung ÜBERGANG. ERINNERUNG.

Eine Zusammenstellung, die sich mit dem Thema des Übergangs beziehungsweise mit dem der Erinnerung beschäftigt. Ein Übergang beinhaltet oft – gerade am Anfang – das Erinnern an das Vorherige. Der örtliche Übergang, der Wechsel von einem Ort zum anderen, insbesondere der von einem bekannten zu einem fremden Ort, intensiviert das Erinnern. Später erinnert man sich anders an die fremden Orte als an die gewohnten, ebenso wie der Wandel persönlicher Umstände sich auf eine ganz eigene Weise ins Bewusstsein gräbt. Continue Reading →

September 11 – October 05, 2014
LE BAL, Paris

« The highway is a loop. From a starting point, you always go back. Sophie Calle, Julien Magre, Stéphane Couturier, Alain Bublex, Antoine d’Agata, here they are, five artists who have hit the road in response to LE BAL’s invitation and with VINCI’s support. Looking for a story, often their own. Anonymous and yet so familiar, the highway became their creative land, their intimate playground. For all of them and for sure, an invitation to find themselves, to get lost… s’il y a lieu. » Continue Reading →

Simon Rimaz | Unusual View of Unknown Subjects

Unusual View of Unknown Subjects, 2013

This series is a body of work based on press photographs that have been collected in various newspaper archives in the United States. All images that are published in the press are regularly gathered in these archives where they are marked, numbered and indexed by date or key words. The prints are full of peripheral elements that explain their existence and legitimacy.

From amongst all these marks, I have focused on the indications showing how the image was to be cropped for publication. These “stigmata” are proof of the use of the image and of its transformation. They take the shape of visual (sometimes textual) dialogues between the protagonists who have handled it. Parallel stories in themselves, these annotations are also indications of “that-which-has-been”, a notion that is so fundamental in the history of the photographic medium. Continue Reading →
