Beatrix Reinhardt's residency - July & August 2009

Beatrix Reinhardt is our current resident: german photographer established in New York, Beatrix Reinhardt has been working since more than ten years on the politics of space through photographic documentation: how demarcation can be achieved through decoration and organization, the way individuals express themselves through how they organize, use and decorate their spaces, and how this can be seen as an expression of cultural values, ideals, beliefs, individual taste and sensibilities (Beatrix Reinhardt).

Part of her work focuses on the social spaces of privates clubs around the globe: she strated this work in Sidney and developed it afterthat in New York, Beijing, Madrid, London, Shanghai etc. in a work inspired by names such as Robert Frank, Gregory Crewdson, Judith Samen, the Becher, Boris Mikhailov, Candida Höfer etc.

The development of this body of work is going to be the main purpose of her residency in Barcelona.

Next residences: Daniel Nevers (June) and Beatrix Reinhardt (July-August)

We're preparing new residencies for homesession with two artists coming soon to Barcelona, both of them with very exciting work and projects.

Daniel Nevers (USA-Oakland) will be the artist in residence at homesession in June.
Daniel has developped a work based on sculptures and installations made with Do-It-Yourself (DIY) materials, trying to establish links between Home Depot and... O, the Oprah Magazine: because irony is a serious tool to understand our psychology, his works are representations and constructions that try to materialize our personality, as it would be described by Pop Psychology. Strong materials get tortured and compressed, representations are completed till they reach the chaos, concrete walls finally reveal their precarious construction: each installation is a new story about the mysterious interdependance between our conscience and the others: defenses, necessity, projection, prohibitions, porosity and impossibilities.

Beatrix Reinhard's residence is planned for July and August.
Beatrix Reinardt (Germany-Berlin/USA-New York) is a photographer whose work focuses on the politics of spaces: most of her photographs are empty spaces filled with traces, signs, evidences that build a speech with social implications, despite of the absence of living beings. Actually, through this absence, Beatrix has found a very striking way to express what the organization of spaces can tell about the interactions that usually exist in those places. Those social landscapes introduce a possibility to build real and imaginative narratives, establishing a relation between the viewer and a space he usually doesn't even know. By taking pictures of empty spaces, Beatrix focus on cultural values, social realities, tastes and beliefs: those photographs can actually be conceived as intimate portraits of the individual/s who is/are absent at the moment of the photography.

Ramon Guimaraes at Espace Cultural Ample Gallery / Barcelona, from 26-03 to 05-06

The Espace Cultural Ample Gallery presents the individual show of Ramón Guimaraes: Identity Code.

Ramón Guimaraes has developed during last years works focusing on clichés, stereotypes and human relations, always referring to the identity as one of its most important guidelines.

Working with medias such as video, photography, drawings and objects, Ramon Guimaraes uses daily life as a raw material for his work, transforming everydaylife actions, sentences or thoughts, touristic or cultural clichés into real performances. This work allows him to achieve a deconstruction of what this ordinary material implies about us, our feelings and our relations with the outer world.

Deconstruction which remain obvious in the use he makes of the masks, disguise and role-plays gathering ressources such as comedy, surprise and alarming atmosphere. Converting himself (say, his character) into more or less typical or recognizable stereotypes, he plays with the audience and seat ourselves in front of the things as they are: full of prejudices, fake appearances and deceptive freedom. From all the angles Ramon Guimaraes imagines, the audience will attend an image of the way we remain totally stuck in a social conception that's incompatible with the individual freedom we're convinced to have reached.

Where: Espace Ample Gallery, Barcelona
When: opening 26/03 at 7pm. Exhibition from 26/03 to 05/06
