One Step Beyond

One Step Beyond @ Galerie Christophe Gaillard “For a long while the indexed nature of photography laid at the heart of theoretical discourse on this medium. For Rosalind Krauss as for Roland Barthes, Henri Van Lier, Philippe Dubois and others, the contiguous relationship between the image and its referent was one of the ontological foundations […]

Johan Rosenmunthe

Johan Rosenmunthe Work from Tectonic. “Stones transcend human life and experience. They live on different time scales to humans, exist on other planets and fall from the sky to Earth. Both art and philosophy have looked upon the stone before (think Sartre’s nausea at pebbles on the beach) because they are compelling objects of alchemical […]

Justin Hodges

Justin Hodges Work from Under Construction. “The still life has an expansive history in artistic practice, generally conjuring images of tabletops filled with flowers and wine glasses. Less obvious, though, is its ubiquitous existence as advertising, spanning the gap from print to screen. Simply, Under Construction is a body of work, which questions the way […]

Marina Gadonneix

Marina Gadonneix Work from >After the Image< @ Kaune, Posnik, Spohr. Gadonneix‘s works are dialogues within spaces staged along the boundaries of the abstract, creating interesting points of confluence between the history of photography as staging and the history of abstraction.

Holger Kilumets

Holger Kilumets Work from Maps and Territories. “Maps & Territories is an elaborate exploration of the meaning of representation through a series of slightly disparate images, designed to relate to each other through the notion of free association. Borrowing elements from the history of art, photographic practice and advertising imagery, the series attempts to reveal […]

Daniel Everett

Daniel Everett Work from New Existence. “Daniel Everett embodies the current technological zeitgeist shared by post dot-com kids, the kids of the dot-com kids, and the relationship we have to our interconnectivity (the internet). His work is jaded, earnest, and self mocking at the same time.” – Beautiful/Decay

Frameshift

There is a gallery talk with useful pictures and some of the artists tomorrow (Saturday) at 3:00pm. “The six artists in Frameshift collide with and attempt to negotiate the technical image as encoded by the camera. The practices represented occupy the divide between the hand-crafted image historically available and attributable to […]
