A solo exhibition with photographs by Jan Lemitz.
At the heart of this installation lies the history of the idea of the Eurotunnel between Calais, France and Dover, Great Britain. The tunnel represents the difference between accepted and undesired mobility. In the metaphorical sense, the tunnel resembles the functioning of an optical means of visualisation. Remaining hidden and concealed, it renders control mechanisms of the border regime and subversive...

Works on paper by Mikko Kallio
”In the beginning work goes quickly, I arrange bits of paper and different objects on the sheet of paper, and that’s the composition. Then I can look at it for weeks. This seedbed is not yet a living one. It is still undefined. Now I need to let things develop and grow.” Mikko Kallio’s works are in many ways archeological. Sand, wood, wool and pieces of...

Friday, 27 May

In their visual language Ruth Wiesenfeld and David Benforado share a musical approach to parameters such as tone, shape and texture. The exhibited works are silent, yet carry an echo of acoustic perception within themselves. David Benforado employs the elements of silence and pause as a point of departure to create room for contemplation in his paintings. Departing from Darkness as the antecedent of Light, he creates spaces on his canvases in which light...

Leslie Thornton, Luna (Still), From the series Luna, 2013, Three Channel HD Video, Edition of 3 + 1 AP
Thornton's project deals with the relationship between chronology, technology, mediation, and with the "historical" as an artifact of the cinematic/digital image.
Luna is an invocation of loss, as well as a tacit critique of nostalgia. How do you address history with something as fragmentary and minute as cinema? What occurs and is at stake in today's digital absorption of the "world"? By focusing on the presence of the technical image, Luna addresses the...
