WHAT'S LEFT
21.NOV 16.JAN 2014
The question of photography, since the early history of the medium, raises a complex set of misunderstandings. Is photography a representation of reality, or just a fraction of it that has nothing to do with reality itself? The shot apparently represents a portion of reality, one that is so precise as to replace painting, or to force painting to take alternative paths, heading towards non-reality.

Bénédicte Peyrat
10.MAR  18.APR. 2009
Born in Paris in 1967, Bénédicte Peyrat has created a series of oils on canvas of intense impact.
The paintings seem to belong to a different epoch; enigmatic women that stand imposingly against a background of dense, color-laden skies that blend with the earth’s horizon. The convulsive, energetic brushstrokes generate a plastic quality of the figures that in their nudity reveal explicit force, but also stunned immobility, in a rarified, enveloping atmosphere.

Ann Craven
22.SEP   30.OCT. 2004
Ann Craven’s paintings are a sweet colour-coated narcotic trip - Craven seduces with pinks, yellows and scarlets that lure you into a fantastical Disney-like world where any trace of the original and harsh world of nature is abysmally lost. She portrays a nature that is naïve, a nature that has been manipulated, manipulated through commercial imagery in postcards, calendars and the film industry.

11.FEB 29.MAR. 2003
The paintings of Bart Domburg feature images of specific places with their own historical, religious or personal significance. It is not possible to observe them as if they were simply landscapes or views. Looking at them, we have the clear sensation that something has happened, at a certain time, and that we are not simply observing a place, but what has happened precisely in that place.

She calls her films “human dramas”. They deal, as do many of her other works, with human relationships, sexuality, the difficulty of communication, individual identity, its formation and disintegration. The stories Ahtila tells through her films and photos are based on research, on real and fictive events, on the experiences and memories of the artist herself, of those she knows, or of complete strangers.

In the imperturbable repetition and variation, there is a spiritual, Zen-like quality.
