JULIA HEURLING ”A HORIZON IS NOT FLAT”

A HORIZON IS NOT FLAT

EVENT: AN EXHIBITION BY JULIA HEURLING

PART OF THE WORKSHOP “MAPPING KEFALONIA”

TIME:    OPENING FRIDAY 27 JUNE 20.00

PLACE:             THE IONION CENTER FOR THE ARTS AND CULTURE

How can you activate/invite a viewer to read/visit a place through photography?

What are the limits and extensions of visual perception and representation of specific photographic works?

The title refers to how maps usually represent a two dimensional idea of reality. By taking photographic series I aim to accentuate the human experience of place, focusing on ground perspective and three-dimensional experience.

The project have developed from collecting views by photography, and investigating different ways to represent the island Kefalonia from these views. The exhibition also include photographs from the island Skeppsholmen in Stockholm. The investigations tell about views, but also about the position of the eye.

The photos are taken in series, to describe continuity, context and viewer perspective

of visual appearance. The series are combined into patterns, addressing questions as:

What do repeat do to the visual content in a photography? Will it be redundant or are other qualities than motive given attention?

I see and use photographs as a tool for visual thinking. Photographs give opportunity

to explore reality in separate constituent parts. When working with pattern, interrelations, continuity and rhythm within a composition are equally important as content of an image. The project can be seen as a subjective and slightly fictional take on a documentary medium as photography.

Similar to the idea of abstraction, pattern can be a tool to clarify, simplify and exaggerate

certain visual characteristics. “A horizon is not flat” aims to communicate and highlight characteristics as shape, colour and spatial changeability of Kefalonian views and appearances.

“THE ARTIST’S MIND’’: Exhibition and seminar – Marietta Patricia Leis & David Vogel

THE ARTISTS MIND’’: An Evening with the Artists

Marietta Patricia Leis & David Vogel

at

 IONION CENTER FOR THE ARTS & CULTURE

October 19, 2013

http://www.mariettaleis.com/2013/12/greece-residency-and-exhibit

http://www.mariettaleis.com/category/news/ and atwww.gallerysonjaroesch.com.

THE ARTISTS MIND: An Evening with the Artists will explore the creative processes and what goes on in the mind of the artists as they are conceiving, executing and eventually exhibiting their art.

Leis and Vogel, Artist Residents at The Ionion Center for the Arts  Culture, will facilitate the evening by discussing their art careers and how their lives and travels influence their work.

Antarctica will be one of the featured topics in the artist talk by David Vogel and Marietta Patricia Leis. Their expedition in January-February was exhilarating, breathtaking and inspirational. A wonderful slide show of their adventures by Vogel will be part of their exhibition. They will also discuss how Kefalonia has inspired their current ideas and work including: the conceptualization, execution, and intended exhibition outcomes. The audience will be invited to look, listen and participate during the discussion and exhibit.

The evening will have the feel of entering the artist’s studios and having an insider view of The Artists Mind. The intention of their Artist Residency will be to create work that is “of & from” the local area. It is impossible to predict exactly what will ultimately be created and shown at the Ionian Center or whether it will be in process or in completed form. It is a “discovering adventure” for both the artists and audience.

Part of the exhibit may include cyanotypes, a type of photography that utilizes local material, perhaps octopus, to create images. Additional  photography will also be utilized to interpret Kefalonia, Antarctica and other locations.

Leis and Vogel, a creative married couple from New Mexico, USA, of international renown will create an interesting, fun and interactive experience for the folks who attend this event.
