Du 17 septembre 2015 au 17 janvier 2016

L’exposition part d’un constat : celui d’un usage généralisé du terme kitsch pour décrire un ensemble de créations d’artistes du Moyen-Orient et en particulier d’Égypte, de Syrie, du Maroc, d’Iran et de Turquie alors même que les œuvres ainsi désignées entretiennent avec le kitsch une relation complexe, entre recours et rejet du terme, entre acceptation et refus, détournement voire subversion du concept même de kitsch, bousculant alors nos propres représentations et catégorisations.

And Me, 2015

Following on from the success in Shanghai, PHOTOFAIRS is delighted to announce highlights of the public program for PHOTOFAIRS | San Francisco.

Bringing experts from across the industry, the public program will include Conversations and Insights.

Conversations

A dynamic series of talks drawing on key themes and ideas seen throughout the fair:

– British artist Paul Graham looks at 30 years of publishing, including his most recent book The Present
– Collecting with a Focus: The Huyck Katz Collection. LA based collectors Willard Huyck and Gloria Katz will explore their extraordinary collection of Japanese photography. The timing of the conversation will coincide with the release of their new book, Views of Japan, published by Steidl
– Contemporary Moving Image.  Curator Lindsay Howard will discuss current trends in the fields of film, video, animation and internet art with Zachary Kaplan(Executive Director, Rhizome, New Museum), Jason Eppink (Curator of Digital Media at the Museum of the Moving Image) and Michael Huang (Collector and Co-Founder, M WOODS, Beijing)

Entry to all Conversations events and book signings will be included in the ticket price.

Insights

Following its hugely successful launch at PHOTOFAIRS | Shanghai in September 2016, the fair’s museum quality selling-exhibition Insights, will explore living artists’ maverick approaches to the medium through the use of contemporary techniques.Â

Co-curated by PHOTOFAIRS Artistic Director Alexander Montague-Sparey and Allie Haeusslein, Associate Director, Pier 24 Photography, San Francisco, the exhibition will be presented through two chapters: the first focusing on works exploring the Western landscape by West-Coast artists, whilst the second will present works from further afield from other parts of America, Europe, the Middle-East and Asia.

The aim of the exhibition is to place local artists alongside international ones, to underline the breath of this theme within contemporary photography. Artists on show from the West Coast will include Chris McCaw, Sean McFarland and Meghann Riepenhoff. The international offering will explore the work of 20 artists including Sissi Farassat, Shao Wenhuan, Esther Vonplon, and Anja Niemi.

PHOTOFAIRS | San Francisco will run January 27-29, 2017 at Festival Pavilion | Fort Mason, San Francisco.

STITCH

Freilich vermitteln die mit so viel Handarbeit versehenen, bestickten und beknüpften Fotos auch den iranischen Hintergrund ihrer Familie, lassen an persische Teppichknüpfkunst denken und ergänzen durch ihre Oberflächen eine sinnliche Komponente. Besonders deutlich wird das im C-Print „Hinter Vorhang IV“, wo die Frauengestalt in lasziver Pose – wie immer Farassat selbst – hinter einem Behang aus Lametta verschwindet. Wie Perlenschnüre scheint dieser ins Rotlicht-Boudoir zu führen – man ist versucht, ihn wegzuheben. Ein Anflug von Verruchtheit haftet dieser unterdrückten Geste an.
