Sphere & Human Landscape| Sigrun Neumann

Literature, music and film are an integral part of my artistic inspiration. Frequent changes in places of living to India and Arab-Countries, South-East-Asian and Mediterranean countries have given shape to subjects and style. Art is thus both an intercultural communication and an interaction transcending all cultures. Art gives the possibility to get different cultures nearer to each other and to correspond with each other’s cultures, this forms the central purpose, ideas and inspirations of my works and helps to overcome any constraints imposed. Through my work, I present Human Landscapes. Sometimes I use human faces or figures which express the inner world of a humans or his psyche and do not show reality like a photography. Humans are thus presented as integrated in nature and are part of their surroundings.

Graduate of the Central Union of Decorative Arts, I first focused on advertising. I also created my own graphic editing studio. Actually, I prefer painting and devote all of my time to it.

I work with acrylic and a brush and knife. I express myself most of the time with bright colors often tempered by gray, brown and gold, on large formats. The material is sometimes thick and can hide several layers. My painting is abstract and spontaneous. I believe that my work exudes energy and vitality.

Girl Gang | Group Photo Exhibition during Photo Month OFF

Girl Gang is composed of eight female identifying storytellers from all over the globe who decided to come together at a pivotal time in history, not just in the world but also in photography. According to statistics collected by Women Photograph, an organization whose aim is to elevate the voices of female and gender-queer photographers, there is a clear lack of representation of women, especially women of color, in the media. In 2018, only 7.3% of the lead photo bylines published were by women at Le Monde and 19.9% at The New York Times.

The female gaze is a powerful thing, offering access to many worlds, most often hidden from men. It’s important to see how we observe and document the world. Moreover, Paris is an important city not only because of its rich ties to photography but also because of its international landscape. We are here to be heard and to have our photos seen. Exhibiting here allows us to have our stories amplified.

Black Holes | a photographic voyage by Julien Sunyé

The War is not over, interior and exterior stigmas

Paris, May 2019

“Every year we celebrate peace, but in reality we are still at war.” Through 24 European destinations, 54 shots, 26,000 kilometers, the photographer Julien Sunyé evokes the traumas of the conflicts crossed, those that we believe forgotten or those that we ignore through denial. Here, photography reveals the cry of “the vulnerable being in search of peace”. A poignant series of about fifty color and black-and-white photographs that challenges the identity of each of us faced with the violence of internal conflicts, such as those who have opposed or still oppose men today in the world.

A metaphor for humanity

“Black Holes” is a metaphor for humanity. Faced with light, nude bodies remind us of the fragility of human nature. The models photographed are in survival mode, they seek to continue to live in peace despite life in danger. The human race has always struggled to appease what has hurt it, these wounds that can never be completely eradicated or repaired. Julien Sunyé evokes the quest for peace through his work: “The emotions that go through us often have their origins in childhood. It takes time, attention and real work on oneself to understand and analyze them. Modern life unfortunately leaves little room for this inner quest. Finally, to show one’s pain is to learn how to overcome it, to make peace with one’s past and create a harmonious future for one’s self and others.”

This series pays tribute to victims who have fallen victim to collective violence as well as those who are still trapped and fighting against their own past. The question is: how can we survive this violence and at what price? And what does peace and freedom mean when you are still trapped in past violence? “The commemorated wars are deceptive: the violence has not completely ended. Although nature and time have repaired wounds to make them invisible, they persist in another forms.”

Photography, act of resilience

In 2013, Julien Sunyé is plunged into a severe depression whose cause escapes him. It prevents him from working and being able to express his emotions and therefore continue to live. Seeking to cope, Julien Sunyé becomes interested in different forms of trauma. He learns that the trauma of early childhood is deeply rooted in the subconscious and that he can define the present. He understands that one then becomes a prisoner of one’s past.

During the summer of 2016, the photographer decides to go to the battlefields of Verdun. He is struck by the idea that the past can lock up an individual but also an entire people. Soothed by the photographic work that he is doing in several countries in Europe on “sensitive or historical” sites, Julien Sunyé feels that he is in the right place to lead his reflection. Each new photographic session helps him overcome his depression a little more until he finally manages to recover in September 2018.

About Julien Sunyé: Self-taught photographer, Julien Sunyé uses photography since childhood as a collection of the best moments to share. From this idea is born an unflinching passion for photography that will never leave and will continue to grow. Franco-Dutch (French by his father and Dutch by his mother), he found his inspirations in the work of Henri Cartier-Bresson and the Dutch painters, including landscape paintings of the 16th and 17th.

About

Accompaniment of Artists who go on stage and dare the first step of exposure

Since 2018, after meeting many artists who were afraid to highlight their art and confront the returns of the public, Evelyne Toromanian initiated and created the collective Les Arts des Âmes. She has developed a mentoring for artists that allows them to clarify their message, to introduce themselves, to be in intimate contact with their art and connect with the public. Very practical and subtle questions are discussed such as how to set prices, how to communicate as an artist, how to handle criticism, what other channels to sell his art other than exhibition spaces … all the while discovering a unique and singular way which sticks to the skin of the emerging artist. A first on stage or a first exhibition is prepared. There is a time when this is the right moment, where the artist is confident enough to dare to give birth, to give birth to his message and to transmit it, to assert himself in his posture as an artist.

Beltimentas | Photographs by Lucio Aru & Franco Erre and Theatrical Performance The Dress of Memories

During Fashion Week 2019, Paris will be the first stage of the photographic project Beltimentas, which offers a new point of view on Sardinian identity heritage linked to clothing and traditional costume.  After the French capital the initiative lands in Moscow and in Doha.

The Project

Paris Fashion Week is one of the most important and awaited events in the world. This year, during the great event, scheduled from 25 February to 5 March, the French capital will be a showcase of excellence for a piece of Sardinia. The Studio Galerie B&B, specialized in photographic exhibitions, from 1 to 3 March, will host Beltimentas (in Sardinian “clothes”), a creative format that proposes a new outlook towards Sardinian identity heritage linked to clothing and custom.

The initiative is conceived and organized by Compagnia B of Cagliari (Sardinia – Italy), with the curatorship of Micaela Deiana, and realized thanks to the economic contribution of the Autonomous Region of Sardinia (Regional Operational Program – POR – European Regional Development Fund 2014-2020).

Studio Galerie B&B will be home to a photographic exhibition and a short theatrical performance that will proposes a contemporary use of tradition in a perspective that intertwines art, craftsmanship, design and ethno-anthropologic tradition. It employs the experimental languages of art, theatre and photography to valorize the ethno-anthropologic characters that animate Sardinian cultural production.

After Paris, Beltimentas will be exhibited in the Winzavod Center for Contemporary Art in Moscow (from 30 March to 1 April) and in Doha, Qatar, on 4 and 5 April, with the aim of giving particular visibility to Made in Sardinia products on the occasion of events that recall a public particularly sensitive to the interconnections between culture, fashion and design.

The Exhibition

The photographic exhibition bears the signature of two international photographers, Lucio Aru & Franco Erre, who, after working experiences in Bologna and Milan, moved to Berlin in 2013, where they still live and produce, moving from portraiture to fashion, mixing their respective backgrounds.

The photographic images are accompanied by a theatrical performance, The Dress of Memories, directed by Alice Capitanio in which the costumes, social roles, daily and family life emerge through the roles of traditional dress. At the end of the performance, the audience will be able to interact with the costumes, touch them, smell them and wear them in order to create an emotional and sensory involvement of the spectator.

“In Sardinian culture, traditional dress acquired the value of standing enclosing the signs of history and the daily life of every individual in its weaving. Every piece of clothing was like a snapshot of the life of its wearer. Some signs, occasionally mysterious, can be relived in modern-day communication in the world of fashion, where wearing traditional dress has become a means of talking about oneself through true and real differentiated cultural symbols.

Still today there is a long thread that unites every part of our body. A woven thread that welcomes and covers. It holds the body of the new-born baby, its growth into adulthood and it accompanies him to his death. To be dressed, dressed up means being in contact with other people, dressing up is status and even more, it is an expression of non-verbal communication, an expression of the human need for empathy, to be looked at, listened to, understood, even by a total stranger we might meet out and about.

A woven thread united the communities around ancient Sardinia and it is the same thread that unites people today, wrapped in their need to feel less lonely.” (Alice Capitanio – Artistic Director of Beltimentas project)

Sardinia and the ancient traditional clothes

Sardinia is a land rich in history and traditions. In addition to its natural beauties, which make it famous all over the world, it has many folkloric aspects with roots far back in the centuries. One of the most typical elements is certainly the variety of local dress, different from country to country. Sardinian costumes, whose colors and designs have been handed down almost unaltered for at least 500 years, are particularly elaborate and colorful: rich and bright colors for women, more severe for men. The ancient tradition of dress and traditional clothes in Sardinia continues to fascinate both for the historical relief of the creations, both for the originality and variety of the ways of dressing.

The dresses of the island are very different from each other, practically each of the 370 municipalities of the island preserves historical memory and defends them with pride, because the ancient way of dressing hides the identity of each country, is the living testimony of its culture and the way to understand fun, work, pain. The dress, in the past, emphasized the different moments of the cycle of life: simple in everyday life, gorgeous in the days of the party, sober and composed in moments of mourning. Today almost no one wears the ancient customs anymore in everyday life, only some elderly people in the most central towns of Sardinia.

Artistic direction, ideation and production

Compagnia B was created in 2004 by Alice Capitanio and Luca Sorrentino. It is a workgroup that is open to the most diverse art forms and works in a perspective of absolute contamination between codes of expression. It organises workshops, sensory performances, shows and cultural events with an experimental element, in which the arts encounter social innovation.

Curatorship

Micaela Deiana is a project manager in the field of contemporary arts. She works as a curator of events and art exhibitions, developing projects for public and private bodies. She’s a social media strategist for cultural initiatives. She collaborates with sector magazines (Flash art, Giornale dell’arte) and writes for the Culture & Entertainment page of the Unione Sarda journal.

Unspectacular Subjects | Photographs by Charles Brink

My exhibition proposes a selection of photographs of places, objects or beings crossed at random during my travels. I do not seek the spectacular; I only try to highlight the singularity of ordinary subjects.  On a daily basis, our eye meets objects, but conditioned by our education and our expectations, we observe the world according to what we think it should be.

Photography, based on the ability to observe and isolate something in an ordinary setting, is the exposure of a certain look to reality, so that the other can penetrate into this vision.  It’s an invitation to share.

Erbil, in the Shadow of its Citadel | Photographs by Olivier Prévôt

A graduate of SPEOS, Olivier Prévôt photographed the Middle East from 2008 to 2014 before becoming more involved in writing as editor of the magazine L’esprit de Narvik and the monthly Causeur. It is thus that he presents himself:

“I approached photography after the age of forty. I do not know exactly where this necessity arises: between aesthetic emotions, even erotic, and political convocation, the Middle East imposed itself on me as a compulsory place. I went there; I go there again in a recurring, obsessive way. From Iraq to Kuwait, from the Palestinian camps in Jordan to the dockers in the port of Dubai, from the Syrian suburbs to the small Kurdish towns of Turkey and Lebanon, I try to understand as much what is happening there as I do, Grows there. As in the eponymous film of Joana Hadjithomas, I want to see.

More photographer traveling than traveling, I try to erase any excessively picturesque, and any convocation of exoticism – this one can however arise or creep into what I give to see, the photography of report always oscillating between an attempted mastery and a real rebel, an art of defeat.

I do not like compulsory turbans, preferring by far a soccer jersey on an abandoned adolescent body, nor the perfect ocher of historic buildings when a wall unevenly rebuilt breezes tells me so many stories …”

Deceased at the end of 2016, Oliver Prévôt left more than 55,000 photographs unpublished.

Olivier Prévôt made two stays in early 2009 in Iraqi Kurdistan and particularly in the capital of the autonomous region, Erbil. Its citadel, inscribed by UNESCO as a world heritage site, is the heart of this exhibition. Around it, have been arranged portraits of people who live there, testimonies of the degradation of time and images of these peculiarities that make it endearing, such as the extraordinary weaving of electrical wires throughout the city. This is a framework for future exhibitions by Olivier Prévôt on Iraqi Kurdistan.

Lieux-dits [Said Places] | Photographs by Elise Prudhomme

Photographic author, Elise Prudhomme, uses her many cameras to explore the possibilities and limits of the medium. Her subject matter varies from Landscape, Portraits or Interior Spaces but throughout there is a humor, irony and an appreciation of the surreal.

Her latest exhibition is titled “Lieux-dits”. This is a French toponymic term that literally translates as “Said Places”. It refers to small geographical locations that bear traditional names often based on some characteristic of the place, its former use, or a past event. These photographs represent events as well as places, as in a memoir. One single shot was not enough to express the feeling engendered by the locale. Through a creative use of multiple exposures to generate diverse reference points, the emotions associated with the “Lieux-dits” are anchored in memory.

Taken during travels, when my sensitivity to my surrounds was most acute, they relate tales of encounters, lights and foreign languages during an adventurous time in my life“.

Biography

Graduate of Smith College in Art History and Italian Literature, Elise Prudhomme works as a photographic author while continuing her research on photographic techniques in Florence and Maine (USA).  In the 90s, she moves to Paris where she participates in the creation of Francis Picabia’s catalog raisonné.

Self-consciousness, her first series in medium format black and white film is awarded at Royan, then wins the 2012 Grand Prix of Riedisheim on the theme “Feminine”:

Working with the self-portrait, I tell the story of a young woman’s self-awareness.  Placed as a witness, the camera plays an important role in the steps of this process, encouraging self-discovery and self-revelation through the construction of her own image.

With enthusiasm and rigor, Élise Prudhomme explores creative processes combining analog and digital photography with medium and large format cameras. Light is her first tool and inspires the treatment of the subject whether it is an interior space, landscape or portrait as illustrated by her work for the Foundation of National Parks and Gardens in France and the Theodore Roosevelt Association in the United States.

Gotas de Azahar | Works by Atelier MayeCamarena

A moment of 43 years – by Francisco Javier Avila Maye, Madrid, June 1973

I hear a new sound … a sound that will envelop me and fill me with joy all my life. The clatter of some strange hammers adapted to rhythmic hands giving shape to a simple plate, filling it with ornamental fantasy willing to move any eye that knows how to look.

At this precise moment, my professional life began at only thirteen years old!

The nights of Madrid have a special charm: pencils, lights and shadows, colors and engraving, School of Applied Arts and Crafts (74-77) … diplomas and awards, what an emotion! Then come other schools: Circulo des Beaux-Arts (77-80), Academy of Painting Cervantes (80-83).

Other chiselled plates for unique pieces, different workshops and goldsmithing techniques but naturally, years of experience.

After having worked in different cities of Spain, such as Madrid, Murcia, Ciudad Real and Seville, I found myself in Paris, the cradle of art, following the wake of faith and optimism of my companion, an excellent and passionate Parisian. At this moment, I look back and find myself in the prelude of my apprenticeship, wanting to learn and pass on my experience and different goldsmith techniques to my son Borja, while continuing to apply my engraving here in Paris.

The birth of a work by Monique Camarena

An idea is born in the mind of the goldsmith, night and day thinking of her.  His study, his fabrication, all the fundamental elements to give life to this unique piece out of his imagination.
Then the magic works!

With skill, the goldsmith runs his pencil on the white paper and observes the sketch of the room to commune with it. Moments of intimacy and creation …

With emotion and assurance, his love affair with metals is triggered. On the smooth plate, is reflected the design of this unique piece and as a conductor, he directs the rhythmic movements of his chisels and hammers on the plate. Sculptor of metals, the goldsmith gives relief and depth to his work Moments fusionnels … Goldsmith and metal, metal and goldsmith, a single entity.

Weeks or months and finally pops up the room.

Overflowing with vegetal or figurative ornaments, geometric decorations or textures,

Light as a plate and strong as metal

The birth of a work, and with it goes away a part of the soul of his silversmith.

This exhibition presents a selection of photographs taken in August 2009 of the Ortasu coal mine in Turkey, on the Iraqi border. The dust, the miners and their lives, these mountains in the Kurdish country form paintings of a simple humanity and happy today disappeared, after the tragic events of December 2011.

Silent Life

From a series of photographs taken by Christine Baudoin in a house in full transformation, Rieja van Aart chose to respond to some of them by compositions of still lifes.

Christine Baudoin is a French photographer, sensitive to urban environments and landscapes, regularly offers since 2011 a often magnified interpretation of her everyday environment.

Rieja van Aart, a Dutch photographer, specializes in still life. She composes her images using found objects, remains of animals, plants, papers and stuffs.
