new in our program, transcends time and age in her latest series “Friction” by juxtaposing photographs of professional ballet dancers, compelled to retire at the age of 35, with the raw landscape of Death Valley in California. She encourages us to follow the flow of an ever-changing world that takes shape through her conviction that beauty is to be found in change: the beauty
of rekindling our thoughts, our ideas, our (human) connections, our society, our bond with nature and most importantly our ‘selves’.
experimental photography of coral reefs and 3D replicas of corals address such questions as political boundaries and the shift of natural
resources as a consequence of globalization. Every year, dozens of illegally uprooted coral specimens are confiscated at Swiss airports and prevented from crossing the border. These are the starting point of Mandry’s works, premiered at Unseen.
is one of the most important Swiss photo artists of her generation. For more than forty years, she has uncovered moments of magic on her journeys or short forays into the nearby landscape. Working largely with an analogue camera, she lends everyday objects and scenes a striking majesty through the incidence of light, perspective and colour.
has enjoyed a meteoric rise to success in the world of contemporary photography. He has a strong preference for time-honoured genres, such as portraiture and nudes. His work shows references to illustrious periods of photography, to Surrealism, for example, but also to the fashion photography and photojournalism of the 1960s and ‘70s.
unites solid materiality with ephemeral immateriality in works that invoke the sublime. He addresses not only the vulnerability and inevitable transience of life but above all its strength, power and wholeness, so much so that his pictures never seem sad, for they are informed with the beauty and richness of life.
