FAKE NATURE: JENS LIEBCHEN & HIROYUKI MASUYAMA @ Galerie Clairefontaine

FAKE NATURE: JENS LIEBCHEN & HIROYUKI MASUYAMA
15.09.-21.10.17

“This exhibition will feature the series System by Jens Liebchen in dialogue with Hiroyuki Masuyama’s series Flowers. In 2014, Hannes Wanderer wrote about System: “Nature only delivered the material for the trees. Position, growth, size and shape have been defined by people and designed down to the smallest detail.” In his series Flowers Masuyama creates images that unite all seasons and thereby overrides the cycle of spring, summer, autumn and winter, which has shaped human life for centuries.”

memymom @ Schilt Gallery


memymom: Reinventing Appearance
18 September – 6 November 2017

“memymom is a collaboration between two artists, mother and daughter, who work and live in Brussels. Since 2004, Lisa and Marilène work as adults together under the name memymom. Their cooperation actually started with what they call The Umbilical Vein, when Lisa was still very young and Marilène started to encourage her to express herself theatrically. This resulted in an image archive that contains half-staged dreamscape portraits that developed into a mature conversation that deals not only with metamorphosis and personal identity, but also emerging themes of sensual analysis and tragic romanticism. It reveals both the foundations of the close mother-daughter bond and the professional career of these two artists.”

Alison Marchant @ The Room

Alison Marchant: Charged Atmospheres
30/9 – 12/11

“Alison Marchant presents a collection of found archival photographs dating back to the 1970s. They depict the interiors of dilapidated stately homes and country cottages.The aged, mottled surface of the photographs echoes the walls and ceilings of the interiors. The dressing table has lost its mirror image, its reflection. These derelict buildings of decaying grander, symbols of inherited prosperity in ruins, also exist as a metaphor for homelessness, swatting and sleeping rough.”

BEYOND SEEING @ Elizabeth Houston Gallery

Andre Kertesz, The Balcony, Martinique,1972, gelatin silver print, 7 1/2 x 9 3/4 in.

BEYOND SEEING
September 6 – October 14, 2017

Reception: Wednesday, September 13th from 6 to 8pm

“Photographically, we are now talking about far more than we are saying, and envisioning far more than we are seeing. BEYOND SEEING takes us, well, beyond the forms of each composition–although those, too, are always more than meets the eye, transmogrified by the lens into the surreal–to the unconscious recognition that undergirds them. ”
