Blank Pages of an Iranian Photo Album by Newsha Tavakolian
13 May to 7 June 2015

Newsha Tavakolian’s reportage focuses on the feeling of claustrophobia experienced by the younger generation in Iran. Taking as their common thread the theme of a family photo album, her photographs depict young middle-class people caught between the contradictory pressures of an increasingly modern society and an Islamic revolutionary ideology.

Tabitha Soren @ The Kopeikin Gallery

unnamed-1Tabitha Soren: Fantasy Life
April 25th – June 6th

Twelve years in the making, Fantasy Life documents the myths of American life that pervade our society. This series explores the fantasies that define America: Manifest Destiny, the romantic idea of the restless wanderer, the hopeful idea that failure is just a step on the road to greatness, the notion that the pursuit of fame and fortune is also the pursuit of happiness, the belief that to secure one’s identity, one must seek to stand apart from the community. Fantasy Life expands upon these beliefs thought to be truths through a captivating series of portraits and landscapes that engage the audience and shift their perspective of baseball.

unnamedCharlie Ruben: Intervention
April 25th – June 6th, 2015

With the rise of digital cameras and smart phones, beautiful photography has become common and ubiquitous. In order to instill value in his photography, Ruben started to distort his photography through bringing in elements of painting, sculpture and collage. The result is a collection of fantastical images that capture the imagination and project an unsettling sense of beauty.

LORI VRBA: THE MOTH WING DIARIES
JUNE 6 — AUGUST 31, 2015

Vrba’s richly textured, meticulously composed photographs are packed with symbolism drawn from art, folklore, mythology, and biblical references. Vrba’s subjects, that include her own children, are actors performing parts in a series of dreamlike vignettes that tell universal stories of love, loss, and the passage of time, and examine the simultaneous joy and pain of motherhood, love, and being an artist. Her portraits are combined with found objects transforming her subjects into otherworldly beings. Feathers appear in many of Vrba’s photographs as a metaphor for flight, transformation, and coming of age.

David Drew Zingg @ Instituto Moreira Salles

David Drew Zingg exposure: image on Image
April 15 to August 9

The exhibition brings together photographs of posters, signs, images and ads in the midst of buildings, streets and people. Images taken over time, and not always linked to the work that was commissioned as a photographer. For at least two decades, Zingg hunted this iconography in Brazil and abroad, in rural areas and in urban centers. Removing writings and figures of context, these pictures show some pop dimension, fundamental component of this part of the work of David Zingg. His imagery force is exactly what is not assumed to be an icon. Signs of times and from different sources, meeting on the images of the photographer, advertise and communicate their messages simultaneously. A picture on the wall says something about a sign up, that belies the inscription on the side. Thus, in one of the photos in a facade of green tiles, we see a door in Gothic church warhead format next to a painting to imitate the photo announcement of Brahma Chopp. In the same house, the place is described as drugstore, restaurant and hotel. And the place is indeed all that, and something else that can not be well expressed by subtitles.

Alexander Gronsky @ The Wapping Project Bankside

MytishchiAlexander Gronsky
14 April – 29 May

Gronsky’s Pastoral series of large format photographs of Moscow’s suburban areas are reminiscent of the arcadian images created by 19th century landscape painters and reconstructs them in a way that jars with the romantic representations of a bygone era. Once defining borders becomes blurred in these photographs – the divisions between urban and pastoral, utopian and dystopian and the actors within these spaces are rendered ambiguous. Gronsky’s arresting use of colour and intelligent compositions are alluring, but these layered works are a study of how people inhabit a territory and what becomes evident in these images is the effect human life has on the environment in this Apothocene age.

SCOTT HAMMOND: The Lovely Road Journeys Through the U.S.A.
April 10 – June 20, 2015

In this digital age, Scott Hammond’s work resonates with the prevalent urge for the quick snap, the selfie, proof that I Was Here. However, in contrast to the infinitely reproducable non tangible 1s and 0s of the digital file, the Polaroid (discontinued in 2008) offered a pocket sized unique artifact of a time and place. There is nothing particularly special about the subjects Hammond chooses, yet, out of an admitted compulsion to collect, along his trips to nowhere he gathers and accumulates bits of the rural and suburban American landscape; a small moment or sight he feels is worthy of being preserved. He calls it “idealizing the ordinary”.
