Klompching Gallery is delighted to announce an exhibition of photographs by:
MATTHEW BAUM • ANDREA LAND • SEBASTIAN LEMM BENJAMIN LOWY • S. BILLIE MANDLE • JAMES POMERANTZ JUSTINE REYES • GREG STIMAC • MONIKA SZILADI
The photographs in The Architecture of Space explore the perception and representation of space—the collapse between public and private, the representation of it’s abstract form and how it acts as a metaphor.
In many respects, the selected artists also embody the state of contemporary photography itself; in that their artworks are not easily packaged into identifiable genres, but illustrate the blurring of those categories. This can be seen through the wide-reaching visual strategies employed, as well as the imaginative modes of production that bring attention to the photograph as an object of construction.
An important thread which links each of the photographs, is the manner in which the photographers have maintained the enduring tropes of photography—especially the hegemony of the frame—whilst firmly placing their images into a contemporary cultural/technological framework.
The exhibition was initially conceived and curated for the Flash Forward Festival (Toronto, October 2010).
