Fleming Ove Bech

Fleming Ove Bech Work from his oeuvre. “Danish photographer Flemming Ove Bech’s images are satisfyingly simple. Taking a straightforward, sculptural approach to image making, Bech’s work combines unremarkable everyday components in a playful manner. Shapes and tones are flattened by the photographic plane and rendered in an oscillating palate of delicately muted pastel hues, and […]

Adam McEwen

Adam McEwen Work from his oeuvre. “Adam McEwen wrote actual obituaries for The Daily Telegraph in London before he ever turned the genre into artwork, writing obituaries for still living and breathing celebrities like Kate Moss and Jeff Koons (he’s done nine in total and has three more on the way). Seeing news in an […]

Brion Nuda Rosch

Brion Nuda Rosch Work from his oeuvre. “Deconstructing or rearranging the commonplace, making new, jarring the viewer out of an object or photograph’s sense of embedded context, Brion Nuda Rosch’s sculptural works and collages make us better aware of what is the immediacy in our environments. Often simplifying the analogical process we bring to a […]

Talia Chetrit

Talia Chetrit Work from her oeuvre. “Talia Chetrit’s second solo show at Renwick Gallery could be described as a satisfying instance of something simple done well. After all, what could be more straightforward than a group of elegantly composed, black and white, still-life studies of pattern, form, texture and light? Chetrit’s exhibition featured images of […]

Miki Kratsman

Miki Kratsman Work from Targeted Killing. “”Targeted Killing”, the new project Miki Kratsman is working upon, examines the term “focused foiling” coined by the IDF (Israel Defense Forces).

Valie Export

Valie Export Work from her oeuvre. “The black-and-white images here are far more quiet. In them the artist uses her body as a kind of measuring or pointing device, leaving us to decide exactly what she is pointing at. She crouches in corners, presses against walls and lies along the ledges of an imposing 19th-century […]

Lisa Shahno

Lisa Shahno Work from THE ITERATION. “The collection is inspired by the Fractal Cosmology theory which maintains the structure of the universe to be of the fractal nature and the universe itself to be infinite in any direction. A fractal is a kind of geometric shape which can be divided into parts, each at least approximately a […]

Marie Quéau

Marie Quéau Work from Gojira. “Gojira is a portrait of the island of Izu Oshima, home of Godzilla, a préhistoric lizard born out of the two atomic bombs that were dropped on Japan in 1945.My work adopts the same attitude as the monster, a fictional creation based on history. This work revolves around symbolism and […]

Bernard Voïta

Bernard Voïta Work from his oeuvre. “…Over the past years Bernard Voïta has worked almost exclusively in the medium of photography, although the way he does so is often compared to sculpture. In his work he challenges the medium’s boundaries and its imputations and sounds out its potential as well as questions of perception. Out […]

Anselm Stalder

Anselm Stalder Work from Vermutete Mitte (Supposed Center). Mirrored in reflective glass, we see ourselves in front of Alpine landscapes from a time of black and white, back when craggy glaciers still filled the valleys and clefts of erosion hew openings into our view. “SEINEBILDER”, “his pictures”, reads the title. But whose, if not those […]
