Melanie Bonajo – As Thrown Down from Heaven

Posted by PF at 7:00 ...

Melanie Bonajo

“As Thrown Down from Heaven focuses on a theme that Melanie Bonajo continually explores; the relationships that human beings have with the environment, both private and public, and the desire to create harmony within this. (…) This series comes from elementary questions: what do we need to add to ourselves until we become complete, happy, satisfied or safe?”

Melanie Bonajo, born 1978, lives and works in the Netherlands.

Ralf Grossek – Collection of Functional Purposes

Posted by PF at 7:00 ...

Ralf Grossek

Ralf Grossek argues in his work about the shape of the urban habitat. In the series “Sammlung Funktionale Absichten” (Collection of Functional Purposes) he examines painstakingly functional invasions of humans in public space. Thereby he is particularly interested in the provisional, whimsical and unexpected.

“With the title ‘Sammlung Funktionale Absichten’ (Collection of Functional Purposes) I describe a collection of most different possibilities of functional control in our environment. It concerns to the problems as well as to their solutions. It deals with the intentions of humans who are organising their living space. (…) The images speak about our environment, inspired by the human desire to achieve order and functionality.” – Ralf Grossek

Ralf Grossek, born 1968, studied Photography at the Folkwang University Essen (GHS). He lives and works in Essen. A review of the book “Sammlung Funktionale Absichten” has been published recently at Mrs. Deane. His work is currently on display in Arnhem until 24th October (together with Beierle + Keijser, Hans Wijninga and Ivonne Zijp).

Emma Wright: History of Violence

Posted by PF at 7:00 ...

Emma Wright - History of Violence

Committed violence, once brought into the world, needs a very long time to disappear again. Emma Wright explores in her project “Denouement” the surroundings of Belfast for traces of the troubles in Northern Ireland.

“These images attempt to create a feeling or an atmosphere rather than have a particular point of view or perspective. Everywhere there are echoes; faded sectarian colours worn from kerbstones or lamp posts, new housing developments in areas known as ‘flashpoints’, bridging the hostile land formally divided by sectarianism.”

Emma Wright, born 1986 in Glasgow, studied Photography at the University of Brighton. She is currently based in London.
