In her second exhibition at Galerie Thomas Fischer Laetitia Gendre is showing a hand-drawn, photographed and printed film poster, a low wall made of (fake) concrete blocks, footage of an industrial machine breaking down, stills from imaginary films, and the outlines of Aby Warburg’s Mnemosyne Atlas like so many clues in a paper chase where the smallest common denominator would appear to be forgery and paper.
„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.
Furuya's exhibition has been reviewed in Artforum 2/2014. More information.
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.
