ArtSlant - Recently added en-us 40 Esther Teichmann, Peter Puklus, Dylan Perrenoud, Teresa Eng, Daniela Djukic, Raphaël Dallaporta, Leon Chew, Cemil Batur Gökçeer, Daisuke Yokota - exp12 / exposure twelve - November 8th 7:00 PM - 11:00 PM <p><span style="font-size: small;">For the third consecutive year, exp12 / exposure twelve collective organises a screening called "the Flood wall", in order to show the diversity of the photographic language through the work of emerging as well as renown artists. For this year,<span style="color: #000000;">our</span> selection presents works which deal with the relationship of the real and what is being photographed : the images show something which one could see as familiar and which at the same time, raise another reality. </span></p> <p lang="en-GB"><span style="font-size: small;">Each artists works with the materiality of photography.</span></p> <p lang="en-GB"><span style="font-size: small;">Daisuke Yokota questions the limits of reproduction (inherent to photography). He takes an endless number of photocopies or photographs in order to obtain a coarser grain and a high black and white contrast which erase faces and give a blurred outline of landscapes.</span></p> <p lang="en-GB"><span style="font-size: small;">Esther Teichmann paints on photographs. And, through photographs of bodies and landscapes, she deals in a sensual way with the notions of love and loss.</span></p> <p lang="en-GB"><span style="font-size: small;">In his own studio, Peter Puklus takes photographs of objects made of flimsy materials that he has found and that he has put together beforehand.</span></p> <p lang="en-GB"><span style="font-size: small;">Dylan Perrenoud uses "the constant change in things" as an underlying principle for his work. And through pictures of natural elements (insects, fossils, rocks...), he is questioning himself about the notion of time and the process of sedimentation.</span></p> <p lang="en-GB"><span style="font-size: small;">Leon Chew applies tin foil to the walls or floors of hotels rooms, takes pictures of this work and then leaves it afterwards.</span></p> <p lang="en-GB"><span style="font-size: small;">Cemil Batur Gokceer plays with contrast and light in order to create ghostly presence.</span></p> <p lang="en-GB"><span style="font-size: small;">Relying on a basis of astronomical documents, Daniela Djukic mixes archive photographs and experimental ones.</span></p> <p lang="en-GB"><span style="font-size: small;">Raphael Dallaporta calls into question the notion of document ; he is using images taken by drones, of some archeological sites in Afghanistan, that he sticks together in order to create asymmetrical bodies. "According to him, these images show the weakness of our achievements" (Angela Lampe).</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: small;">Through poetical images, Teresa Eng faces a traumatic experience and subtly evokes the violence of something that has been lived but remains unspoken.</span></p> Thu, 16 Oct 2014 11:50:35 +0000 Peter Woelck - Laura Mars Gallery - October 21st - November 22nd <p><strong>Extended opening hours: Saturday, 18th of October 2014 until 10 pm<br /> Book presentation: 18th of November 2014, 8 pm</strong></p> <p><strong><br /> Pressrelease</strong></p> <p>Peter Woelck (1948&ndash;2010) studied photography at the Academy of Visual Arts Leipzig.
