SIMON ROBERTS: Multimedia Museum, Moscow

Landscape Studies of a Small Island
April 25 – May 25, 2014

We are pleased to announce that Simon Roberts will be exhibiting at the Multimedia Museum in Moscow, as part of the UK Russia Year of Culture 2014. The exhibition has been curated by Karen McQuaid, Curator at The Photographer's Gallery, London. 

The exhibition draws on a selection of photographs from Roberts' We English and Pierdom series, exhibited at Klompching Gallery as solo shows in 2009 and 2013.

"With renewed interest in the relationship of individuals and groups to the landscape, Roberts focused on social practices, customs, cultural landmarks, economic and political scenarios that define his 'small island' as uniquely British. With echoes of 'history painting', these photographs point to contemporary issues specific to Britain, but equally engage with universal ideas of the human relationship to landscape, of identity and belonging".—Curatorial statement.

For more information about the exhibition, visit the museum website.
To view more of the photographs, visit the We English and Pierdom website pages.

"All photographers invariably walk the line between truth and fiction, but few as imaginatively as Paula McCartney. the Minneapolis-based photographer's seasonably appropriate exhibition at Klompching Gallery, A Field Guide to Snow and Ice, is evidence of that".—Jordan G. Teicher.

Photofestival Knokke-Heist 2014
March 30–June 9, 2014

We are very pleased to announce the inclusion  of Jim Naughten's Hereros series in the 2014 installment of the Knokke-Heist photography festival in Belgium.

A selection of photographs from the Hereros series have been curated into the outdoor exhibition, entitled Haute Afrika, with one of the Naughten's photographs featured on the cover of the exhibition catalogue.

The festival website can be found here

"The title of this year’s outdoor exhibition, ‘Haute Afrika’, does not refer to a geographic region on the African continent, but to ‘Haute Couture’, or the art of creating custom-fitted clothing. We Westerners commonly associate this with big cities such as London, Paris, Milan or New York and consider haute couture to be the epitome of fashion. By incorporating Africa in this traditionally French concept, we arrive at a word combo which defies the imagination. “Haute Afrika”, a place where creativity contributes to prosperity.  
Here you won’t see photos of violent revolutions, dried out deserts or poverty. Instead this outdoor exhibition features photos of the creative inhabitants of this great continent, who showcase their sense of entrepreneurship and their “passion for fashion”.  
The photo festival zooms in on the work of photographers who communicate a multi-tiered message about African society through its fashion culture. “Haute Afrika” presents a specific type of image, with social, political and economic implications. By showing work by foreign artists who visited the continent, as well as photos by African photographers, “Haute Afrika” chooses to highlight different perspectives".—Festival Statement.

The Hereros series was first shown at the Klompching Gallery in March–April 2013, featured by the gallery at the 2013 AIPAD Photo Show and published as a monograph by Merrell Publishers (2013). Read about a museum acquisition from the series here, and a current museum exhibition in which one of the photographs is included here

Jim Naughten's Hereros series can be viewed online, and if you have an interest in acquiring photographs, please contact the gallery for the PDF catalogue.

"For the past several years, the Minneapolis-based photographer Paula McCartney has exploited extreme weather to dazzling effect, capturing detailed portraits of natural winter elements, from frozen waterfalls to ice stalagmites to snow flurries, which have been skewed or exaggerated by rising and falling temperatures. About winter, McCartney says, “I categorize by pattern, shape, and line rather than merely by substance.” Her new series, “A Field Guide to Snow and Ice,” is on view at Klompching Gallery through February 15, 2014".—The New Yorker.

Paula McCartney
A Field Guide to Snow and Ice

We are delighted that our first exhibition for 2014, is A Field Guide to Snow and Ice. This is Paula McCartney's second solo show at the gallery. Made between 2008–2011, it's a highly anticipated follow-up to the artist's Bird Watching exhibition in 2010.

Based upon the premise of the 'field guide'—a book used to accurately identify natural objects—McCartney's new photogrpahs are a visual representation of her idea of winter.

A Field Guide to Snow and Ice is a sophisticated set of photographs, contiuing her visual exploration of truth and fabrication in the photographic image and natural world. The 28 artworks that make up the exhibit, are a sequential installation of modestly-sized photographs, interweaving natural elements and constructed environments—we see snowfalls, frozen waterfalls, stalagmites and snowdrifts.

McCartney's representation of abstracted elements, reveals a nuanced ambiguity of scale and substance, causing what has been photographed, to transcend its origin. This is not an exhibition to take for granted, but one to explore carefully, particularly its use of a collapse between creative and scientific languages.

"I see winter everywhere, in every environment, in every season and categorize it by pattern, shape, and line rather than merely by substance", says Paula McCartney.

Developed over the course of several years, and demonstrating a remarkable maturity and development in her artistic practice, this is a must-see exhibition. 

The photographs are available as follows: 

Varying Sizes: 16" x 13" | 16" x 16" | 16" x 19"
Edition: 7
Medium: Archival Pigment Prints on Canson Baryta. 
Prices: $900, increasing as the editions sell.

Accompanying the exhibition is On Thin Ice, In A Blizzard—a limited edition artist book featuring a selection of photographs from A Field Guide to Snow and Ice.

See the complete series of photographs here.
The exhibition continues through to February 15, 2014.
