Simone Kappeler: Photographs
Hasselblad, Leica, Diana, Brownie, Polaroid, disposable camera or expired films, Simone Kappeler, born in 1952, explores all types of photographic techniques since 1970. His work, constantly renewed, reveals the oddly alien world around us. In an experimental and poetic approach addresses the photographer as close the distance. She photographs her family makeover colors alpine scenery with a film sensitive to infrared or sets the fragile beauty of the flowers under his neighbor’s medical x-ray machine. For this third exhibition at the Belle Juliette, Esther Woerdehoff present a selection works of this artist.

Experimental Photography 1945 – 1950s
September 18 – November 28, 2015
During the period when a new consumerist culture, nurtured by unparalleled economic expansion, coexisted with Cold War anxieties, many American and European artists turned away from realism to focus inwardly. In their quests, the photographers among them took as source material the avant-garde work of their predecessors in the 1920s and 30s and further challenged, deconstructed and otherwise experimented with the unique nature of the medium. Through the exploration of light, paper, film, contrast and chemistry they played with forms to create surreal imagery, emphasize movement and speed, or make abstractions.
This expression of the psychological through the physical or gestural was echoed throughout many arts of the period (e.g. Abstract Expressionism) as was the deconstruction and questioning of the conventions of the media themselves (e.g. Beat poetry, free jazz). With respect to the latter, comparisons can inevitably be made with the current generation of artists experimenting with technology to create photo-based work.

KAISU HÄKKÄNEN: Mad Johnson was here
The series was born when Häkkänen read a name of a street wrong: Mads
Johnsen’s gate became Mad Johnson’s street. Ever since a man called Mad
Johnson has steered the artist along the North Cap and even further.
Häkkänen has shot the series on different sides of the Varang peninsula
between the years 2012-2013 and in the summer 2014 in Svalbard in Grumant
and Barentsburk. This summer she has spent another residency period in
Vadsø and finished the series.
