Exhibiting Artists

  • Carolle Bénitah  (+)

    Biography : The work of Carolle Bénitah is part of notable public and private art collections, such as the Bibliothèque nationale de France, Museum of Fine Arts (Houston), Sunnhordland Museum (Bergen, Norway), Centro Fotográfico Álvarez Bravo (Oaxaca, Mexico), and the collections of Marin Karmitz (Paris), Sir Mark Fhers Haukhol (Houston), Jacques and Galila Hollander (Brussels), and Jan de Bont (Los Angeles). Her work has been published in magazines such as Leica World, Shots Magazine, Photos Nouvelles, Spot, Center for Photography Houston, Foto Noviny, and LensCulture, among others. Carolle Bénitah was born in Casablanca (Morocco) and graduated from the Ecole de la Chambre Syndicale de la Couture Parisienne (Paris). Her series Photos-Souvenirs was selected to exhibit in FotoFest’s 2014 Discoveries of the Meeting Place showcase of past Biennial portfolio reviews, and was recently published into a photo book by Kehrer Verlag.

    Detailed Description : Carolle Bénitah, who worked for ten years as a fashion designer before turning to photography in 2001, incorporates the art of sewing and beading into old family snapshots in her internationally acclaimed series Photos-Souvenirs. In this series, photos are unearthed from albums and shoeboxes, classified, scanned, transposed onto new paper, and finally hand beaded and embroidered by the artist. This final step is accomplished with red, black, or gold thread and wire, and glass beads, chosen for their shine and delicacy. In her series What cannot be said, Bénitah continues to explore her identity and status as a woman. A handwritten sentence is repeated in red ink over a tightly cropped image of a woman’s mouth, the lips of which are pronounced through dark or vibrant pigment or lipstick. These “series of silent desires,” as critic Laurence Cornet wrote, contribute to the artist’s theme of love, “particularly the fear of not being loved that shapes and restrains women’s desire at an early age.”

  • Julie Boserup  (+)

    Biography : Emerging Danish artist Julie Boserup’s unorthodox use of the photographic image has made her an exciting new addition to the contemporary photographic scene. Making use of various image sources such as travel guides and her own photographs, Boserup, b. 1976, operates on a low-tech threshold between collage and drawing, and digital and analog techniques. Her first major museum exhibition at the National Museum of Photography in Copenhagen is currently on view through February 2017. In this exhibition, she presents a large series of collages based on archival photographs from Denmark’s Royal Library. Since graduating from London’s Chelsea College of Art in 2002, Julie Boserup has exhibited extensively throughout Denmark, received the Else and Henning Jensens Painting Award in 2011 and 2013, and was presented a special Talent development award from the Danish Arts Foundation in 2005. She currently lives and works in Copenhagen.

  • Richard Caldicott  (+)

    Biography : Since the artist’s acclaimed series featuring Tupperware in the 1990s, Richard Caldicott has continually challenged photographic codes of representation in favor of new aesthetic and symbolic intentions. Employing traditional analog photography methods, Caldicott imbues his minimalist set of components with rich, vibrant color. The result is stunningly beautiful abstract work that is both self-contained and part of a larger dialogue, with nods to iconic minimalism, Color Field paintings, and pop reappropriation. Richard Caldicott’s work has been acquired in several significant public and private collections, including the Peter C. Ruppert Collection; Museum im Kulturspeicher, Germany; Goss-Michael Foundation, Dallas, TX; Goldman Sachs International, London; Kunstmuseum Bonn, Germany; Sir Elton John Collection, Los Angeles/London; Gert Elfering Collection, Miami; Karl Blossfeldt/Albert Renger-Patzch Collection/Ann and Jürgen Wilde, Köln; and Fidelity Worldwide Investment, London, among others. His work has been exhibited extensively in solo and group shows, as well as several art fairs, including Art Basel, Photo Miami, Paris Photo, FIAC, The AIPAD Photography Show, and the Venice Biennale. Richard Caldicott, b. 1962, graduated from the The Royal College of Art in 1987. He currently lives in London.

  • Gianfranco Chiavacci  (+)

    Biography : A self-taught and innovative Tuscan artist, Gianfranco Chiavacci (1936-2011) was born in Pistoia, near Florence, where he lived and worked for all his life. Surrounded by exceptional artistic circles around Milan and Florence such as Fiamma Vigo’s Galleria Numero, notorious for its unmatched flavor for the avant-garde and kinetic, abstract and geometric art, Chiavacci began his career as a painter in the 1950s. In 1962, after taking a programming course on IBM’s first computers, Chiavacci’s curiosity in this new form of language sparked. With aspects of optical and kinetic art, he made paintings experimenting with different materials creating one-of-a-kind geometric figures and forms, all the while never using the computer, but the binary logic that is inherent to it. In this way, Chiavacci became a part of the unique and pioneering Italian art movement, Arte Programmata. The Arte Programmata movement, known as Italian Kinetic Art, was an important abstract art movement of the 1960s in Italy after the exhibition of May 1962, presented at the Olivetti showroom in Milan, Arte programmata. Arte cinetica. Opere moltiplicate. Opera aperta, curated by Bruno Munari and Giorgio Soavi. In the 1970s, Chiavacci began to use photography as a tool of investigation. By separating himself from the common use of the camera, he researched, recorded and repeated the movement of objects in space and time. Using compositions, photograms, three-dimensional sculptures, color slides and most importantly, light, he developed his most extensive series Ricerce Fotografice (Photographic Researches), a body of work representing the purest form of abstraction. Through his systematic mannerisms, Chiavacci created a world where the system prepared by him became the abstract of art itself. Chiavacci created, over the course of his fifty-yearlong career, an innovative aesthetic based on the binary language that deviates from the conventional rules of two-dimensionality. With

  • Georges Rousse  (+)

    Biography : French artist and photographer Georges Rousse is internationally renowned for his ephemeral, one-of-a-kind installations and resulting photographs. Working at the intersections of photography, painting and architecture, Rousse transforms raw space within abandoned or soon-to-be-demolished buildings into surprising visions of color and shape through the single-perspective of his camera lens. Rousse translates his intuitive, instinctual readings of space into masterful, anamorphic images of several “realities”: that of the actual space wherein the installation is created; the artist’s imagined mise-en-scène, realized from the camera viewfinder; and the final photograph, or the reality flattened. Since his first grant in 1983 from PS1 (NYC), Georges Rousse has created several installations in the US by commision, including the San Diego Museum of Art and the Chesterfield factory of Durham, NC. In 1988, Rousse was awarded the prestigious International Center of Photography Award (NY). His work has been shown in numerous biennials (Paris, Venice, Sydney); exhibited in the Grand Palais (Paris), Hirshhorn Museum (Washington, D.C.), Haggerty Museum (WI), House of Culture (La Paz, Honduras), Sivori Museum (Buenos Aires), and National Art Museum of China, among hundreds of others; and can be found in the collections of the Louvre Museum (Paris), National Museum of Modern Art (Paris), Museum of Modern Art (Vienna), Guggenheim Museum (NY), Brooklyn Museum (NY), Museum of Contemporary Art (La Jolla, CA), Chase Manhattan Bank Collection, La Salle Bank Photography Collection (Chicago), and Deutsche Bank Collection, among several others. In 2008, he succeeded Sol LeWitt as an associate member of the Belgian Royal Academy.

  • Marleen Sleeuwits  (+)

    Biography : Marleen Sleeuwits graduated from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in The Hague and continued her studies at the Masters Photography of AKV | St.Joost in Breda, which she completed in 2005. Her work has been exhibited in the Netherlands in places like The Dutch Photo Museum (Rotterdam), Museum De Fundatie (Zwolle), Museum Het Valkhof (Nijmegen), W139 (Amsterdam) and Nest (The Hague). Internationally, her work has been presented in cities like Jeonju, Los Angeles, Denver, Belo Horizonte, Brno and Berlin. Her work is included in collections such as Collection De Groen, Museum Boijmans van Beuningen, KPMG, Akzo Nobel, Ministry of Foreign Affairs and various private collections.

    Detailed Description : Marleen Sleeuwits is inspired by impersonal environments, places that could be anywhere and nowhere, such as vacant zones in airports, unoccupied corridors of hotels, and empty rooms in office buildings. Her process involves stripping the rooms down to their individual components, laying bare the layers found beneath the surfaces. She then reassembles the room using materials found on-site, such as fluorescent tubes, paper towels, laminate, and tape, by adapting techniques of sculpture, painting and drawing. Experimenting with the variability of the commonplace substances she finds, Sleeuwits creates contradictions of spatial orientation, and then photographs the end results.

  • Ernesto Bazan  (+)

    Biography : Ernesto Bazan’s black-and-white photographs, from the vivid street life he captured in the first years after his arrival in Cuba in 1992, to the contemplative panoramic images of ISLA taken taken in the years just prior to his departure in 2006, documents one of the most complex times for the island country. Yet, grounded in warmth, and borne from the artist’s deeply treasured connection with the people of Cuba, the series conveys the heady, erratic energy through the lens of an insider. Bazan is the recipient of the W. Eugene Smith Grant; Mother Jones International Fund for Documentary Photography; Dorothea Lange-Paul Taylor Prize at Duke University, NC; and the World Press Photo award; as well as fellowships from the Alicia Patterson Foundation and the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation. In 2009, his book “Bazan Cuba” was awarded Book of the Year at the New York Photo Festival, and his panoramic series ISLA was published for the first time in 2014.

  • Robin Cracknell  (+)

    Biography : London-based photographer Robin Cracknell explores themes of love, loss and memory using a unique non-digital process combining traditional film photography and cinematography, and shooting with old, sometimes damaged cameras and salvaged 35mm cine film. In his longterm series Childhood, single father Cracknell offers a stylized, personal vision of childhood through the world of his only son Jake. Born in India and raised in America, Robin Cracknell moved to London in 1987, where he began collecting discarded film cuttings from the projection booth of the Institute of Contemporary Arts London. These found film cuttings would later serve as the new “emulsion” for Cracknell’s photographic work, which has appeared on several magazine covers and over 300 book jackets. Childhood was included in the top ten of over 12,000 artists’ works on Saatchi Art, and was selected for a show curated by readers of The Guardian as well as noted gallerists, critics and artists. His work has since been exhibited internationally, and can be found in the collections of The National Portrait Gallery, London; The Victoria and Albert Museum, London; and Fundacion Privada Sorigue, Spain. A selection of the artist’s notebooks illustrating the process and concept behind Childhood are also featured in the acclaimed 2014 Thames and Hudson publication, “Photographers’ Sketchbooks.”

  • Luuk de Haan  (+)

    Biography : Luuk de Haan, b. 1964 in Vlaardingen, The Netherlands, explores historical techniques wherein camera movement and light sources, designed in advance, determine shape and composition. The artist first creates a simple image via a computer software program. Then, using a camera and motion sensors, de Haan records the movement of the shape on the computer screen, including the negative space of the initial image. This approach, which can take a day or years until completion, creates a surprisingly amount of movement and depth; it lives. The same determination in shape, composition and colour is found in his “drawings,” which are achieved with contemporary tools like software programming and a digital pencil. Besides his photographic work, Luuk de Haan also composes music.

  • Andreas Gefeller  (+)

    Biography : German photographer Andreas Gefeller makes visual misdirection and deception the very basis of his aesthetic. Photographing modern cityscapes and man made spaces through bird's- and worm’s-eye perspectives and utilizing composite construction, his images destabilize the notion of photographic reality. Andreas Gefeller’s work has been included in numerous photo festivals, including The New York Photo Festival (2008), Seoul Photo Festival (2011), and Noorderlicht Photofestival (2011). Gefeller’s work can be found in the collections of the Museum Marta Herford (Herford, Germany), The New Art Gallery Walsall (UK), Saatchi Gallery, (London) Kunstmuseum Bonn (Germany), and Taubman Museum of Art (Roanoke, VA), among several others.

    Exhibition : Andreas Gefeller’s work has been included in numerous photo festivals, including The New York Photo Festival (2008), Seoul Photo Festival (2011), and Noorderlicht Photofestival (2011). Gefeller’s work can be found in the collections of the Museum Marta Herford (Herford, Germany), The New Art Gallery Walsall (UK), Saatchi Gallery, (London) Kunstmuseum Bonn (Germany), and Taubman Museum of Art (Roanoke, VA), among several others. Plan was exhibited at Sous Les Etoiles Gallery in September 2017.

    Detailed Description : In his series Blank, he continues his journey but this time by awakening our fears and imaginations. When traveling the world, in Tokyo, Seoul, Amsterdam, London, Dusseldorf, Gefeller, as a surveyor of his time, gives us a reflection of what the world could be in the event of a future catastrophe. The photographs are far beyond historic and ordinary optical occurences. The works from the space uses the artificial lighting from our towns and cities and turns them into an ephemeral wonderland. Excessively overexposed photographs of building façades, motorway intersections, container terminals and refineries reveal vast faded areas. The photographs create tension between urban reality and its potential chaos leaving the possibility to envision a strange and overthrown world.

  • Eeva Hannula  (+)

    Biography : In her ongoing series The Structure of Uncertainty, Eeva Hannula explores psychoanalytical method and the concept of Freud’s uncanny using a combination of staged photography and material from her personal archive, covering and hiding parts of the images as a metaphor for repressed or incomprehensible experiences and perceptions. Error, chance, and experimentation are essential to the work. For Hannula, the image itself is an uncertain matter located between fact and fiction, language and body. Eeva Hannula, b. 1983, is an emerging photographer currently studying for her MA in photography at Aalto University School of Art, Design and Architecture in Helsinki, Finland. In 2013, she was awarded a grant from the Arts Council of Finland and selected as part of Foam Magazine’s Talent Issue.

  • Karl Martin Holzhäuser  (+)

    Biography : Karl Martin Holzhäuser, b. 1944 in Germany, is one of the earliest champions of Concrete Photography. Today, Holzhäuser has returned to the roots of his chosen artistic medium, creating a new genre in the field of cameraless photography that combines the stringency of premeditated instructions with elements of calculated chance. Calling this work “Lichtmalerei” or “painting with light,” Holzhäuser works completely in the dark, following a predevised “score” of the movement of light from memory, and allowing for extemporaneous adjustments by hand.

  • Barry Underwood  (+)

    Biography : Drawing from his early theatrical training, and influenced by historical methods of staged photography and constructed set design, Barry Underwood seeks to transform ordinary, everyday vistas into unique, and often surreal, experiences. Both Underwood’s installation process, which uses actual structures and may take several days to complete, and his documentation, employing long exposure times to harness the area’s ambient light, rely as much on the artist’s ability to harmoniously collaborate with nature as disrupt it. His photographs are made in various locations around North America, with many of them shot during artist residencies, such as The Banff Center for the Arts (Canada), I-Park Foundation (CT), Headlands Center for the Arts (CA), The Center for Land Use Interpretation (UT), and The MacDowell Colony (NH), among others. His work can be found in the collections of The Akron Art Museum (OH), The Cleveland Museum of Art (OH), Elton John Photography Collection (Atlanta, GA), The Museum of Fine Arts (Houston, TX), TIAA-CREFF (NY), and the Rockefeller Family Art Collection (Petaluma, CA), among several others.
