Alexander Gronsky & Ksenia Babushkina - Schema

No 28. marta līdz 5. maijam jaunatvērtajā ISSP Galerijā būs aplūkojama Aleksandra Gronska un Ksenijas Babuškinas izstāde "Shēma". Diptihus un poliptihus, kas uzņemti dažādās pasaules valstīs (Krievijā, Japānā, Azerbaidžānā u.c.) autori pasniedz kā rotaļu par un ap telpas un laika uztveri. Šai ārēji virspusīgajai azartiskajai spēlei “Atrodi atšķirības” piemīt izteikti fotogrāfisks raksturs. Atšķirības fotouzņēmumu rakursā, vietā vai laikā skatītāju mudina attēlus salīdzināt vienu ar otru, galu galā atsedzot vienīgi apmulsumu, ko šī salīdzināšana izraisa.

Izstādes kuratore: Anna Volkova

------------

From March 28 till May 5 the exhibition by Alexander Gronsky & Ksenia Babushkina "Schema" will be on display at the new ISSP Gallery. The diptychs and polyptychs, taken in various countries (Russia, Japan, Azerbaijan, etc.) are presented by the artists as a playful take on the perception of space and time. This seemingly superficial, exciting game of “spot the difference” is of a specifically photographic nature. Differences in the angles, locations or time of the shots encourage the viewer to compare them with each other, but the diverse images are ultimately linked only by the sense of confusion they cause. 

Curator: Anna Volkova

ISSP Masterclass 2018/2019 - results

We are happy to present the results of the recently completed ISSP International Masterclass 2018/2019! 22 artists and photographers from 15 countries spent a year working on their personal projects under the guidance of experienced mentors. The work was created under two thematic lines - "A Sense of Change", mentored by Peter Bialobrzeski, exploring how changes in the physical, political or psychological landscape can be represented in contemporary photographic practice, and "Answering Questions & Questioning Answers", mentored by Clare Strand and Gordon MacDonald, an experimental class centered on translating ideas into visual language. See the complete collection of the resulting projects online!
