This form of presentation will take place until mid-April. The artist Juliana Borinski will be the first.
#1 Juliana Borinski
20.– 24. Januar 2021
When she works on photography or cinema, Juliana Borinski never uses a camera or video camera. She creates images that are generally abstract, using photosensitive paper or film directly, in order to explore their inherent aesthetic and technical abilities. What should only be a receptacle for images, its medium, thus becomes the very material of her work.
For the series Between Humiliation and Happiness, the artist reworks a sheet of photosensitive paper that has been previously overexposed, then subjects it to various rubbings and folds before exposing it again on a new sheet. Photographic skeleton-like forms against a black background result from this: a typology of image-less photographs.
Juliana Borinski looks for errors, lacks and chance. She positions herself deliberately at the margins of the systems she uses, visual media, taking care to avoid images in the usual sense and new technologies, favouring the “almost nothing”. This unconventional approach is also apparent in the fact that each work is unique, in an era where copying an element can be achieved with a single click, and when the tools of her trade are photography and film.
(Excerpts from a text by Aurélien Pelletier, translated from the French by Anna Knight)
Juliana Borinski was Born in Rio de Janeiro and currently lives in Paris.
Her work has been exhibited internationally, since 2006, at La Vitrina, Lugar a dudas (Santiago de Cali, Colombia), the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art (Rijeka, Croatia), der kunstbetrieb (Dortmund, Germany), the Fondation Henri Cartier-Bresson (Paris, France), MuHKA (Antwerp, Belgium), Württembergischer Kunstverein (Stuttgart, Germany), the Fondation Pernod Ricard (Paris, France), TENT (Rotterdam, The Netherlands), Paço das Artes (São Paulo, Brasil), Le Quartier, Centre d’art contemporain (Quimper, France), NIMk (Amsterdam, The Netherlands), Drawing Room (London, UK), CAC Meymac (France), CPIF Pontault-Combault, France), CAPA (Aubervilliers, France).
She graduated from the Academy of Media Arts Cologne (Germany), in 2007, where she studied with Valie Export, Siegfried Zielinski, Jürgen Klauke and Matthias Müller. During this time, she was at an ERASMUS student exchange at Villa Arson – ENBA de Nice (France) in 2004. She was a guest professor at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts (KASK) in Ghent (Belgium) in 2011. In 2018 she was invited to teach at Art in Public Space department of the Académie Royale des Beaux-Arts de Bruxelles (ARBA-AEsP).
Borinski’s works explore diverse issues in media through an analysis of their primary resources: chemistry, matter and apparatuses. She is currently researching ecological processes of image development applied to analog photography.
