:::::::::: MATERIALIST PHOTOGRAPH::::::::::


In 1977, human history reached a turning point. Heroes died, or, more accurately, they disappeared. They were not killed by the foes of heroism, but were transferred to another dimension, dissolved, transformed into ghosts. The human race, misled by burlesque heroes made of deceptive electromagnetic substances, lost faith in the reality of life, and started believing only in the infinite proliferation of images. [1]

This exhibition features work made in response to the ubiquity of photographic images and the changing nature of the medium. This work has been made using both analogue and digital technologies, and tends to favor material accident over conventional representation. The photograph is thus presented as a register of natural events and chance processes. By allowing the body of the artist and elements of the environment in which they are working to steer and inflect the photographic process, the exhibiting artists attempt to counter the controlling influence of the camera. The results are spontaneous and subjective, allowing a passage from exterior observation to interior reality.

'After Vincent's Pallette' HD video & audio; 9:34; piano Liszt - Nuages gris (Trübe Wolken), S. 199 (1881) [André Laplante]
An emotional response to a Van Gogh work I saw. Nuages gris was one of Vincent's favourites,  according to the Van Gogh Museum. It was one of Lizst's later compositions - unusual for the time in its unresolved ending - like stopping in the middle of sentence.
