„In her, I can see the woman that passes in front of my eyes, I can see the model, sometimes the woman I love, and at other times the shape of the woman inside me. I feel that it is my duty to keep on photographing the woman who has so many meanings for me. By facing her, by photographing her, and then by seeing her in the photographs, it is like seeing myself at the same time, discovering myself.“ So writes the Japanese, Graz-based photographer Seiichi Furuya about the thousands of portraits of Christine Gößler that he took over the course of seven years.
Sebastian Stumpf is an actor without an audience. His actions in urban space are recorded by a still or video camera and often remain unnoticed by passersby. In a new video projection, the artist's body is stationary, occupying spaces as temporary and unforeseen as his interventions.
The exhibition also presents documentation of site-specific works from the series “Leaving White Spaces", ongoing since 2004 and produced for various galleries, museums and collections.
The gallery participates in abc - art berlin contemporary 2013 with a solo presentation by Laetitia Gendre.
Her new installation "Butterfly" (2013), consists of a row of eight graphite drawings on canvas hung one after the other, on a large metallic structure. The drawings themselves depict views of constructed spaces, all representations of domestic habitats. The spaces are shown as bare arrangements of walls, floors, and stairs. Multiple views into this stratified space are available: from the sides, from the front of the installation, and through the cut-outs made into each drawing. While the structure recalls 19th-century paper theaters, the inner logic of the placement of the drawings – from foreground to background – is disturbed by the spatial incoherence and variable scales of the representations.
