Galerie XII Paris is pleased to participate to Photo Days 2022 with the exhibition of Christopher Thomas - 9 Nov.> 21. Jan.
Paris: Bittersweet, Christopher Thomas
“This series is about feelings, sad ones, happy ones and everything in between. It is about joy and fear, it is melancholic and warm, it is about gain and loss, it is about the beginning and the end of life and the whole time in between.” – Christopher Thomas
New Anja Niemi's duo Exhibition: The Blow - The Rider at Galerie XII LA
Galerie XII Los Angeles is pleased to host the new exhibition of Norwegian artist Anja
Niemi. The exhibition presents her most recent bodies of work :
At first glance, The BLOW shows an unaccompanied woman, dressed in black and with a face that is always turned, driving to a solitary house in the desert. Here she trades her clothes for that of a boxer. The boxing paraphernalia builds upon the idea that each photograph is a site of mental training and introspective battle.
In The RIDER, Anja Niemi expresses her struggle in the form of a rider and her horse. The trust and the will to understand each other are essential to their mutual bond. Together they are on an openended journey that requires perseverance and the suspension of fear.
Patrizia Mussa at Museo Ettore Fico, Turin, Italy
Sept. 22 > Dec. 18 - Between painting and photography, the works of Patrizia Mussa bring back the photographic medium and the technique of hand coloring in a timeless dimension.
The meticulous filling of the printed spaces with very delicate shades of pastel colours instils in the viewer a distance that determines in his observation a detachment from the present to bring the artifact back into a timeless and unreal sphere. The reproducibility of the photographic medium is denied in its multiplicity in these works where the artist intervenes by making each print an impossible unicum to replicate.
