Whenever somebody asks me to send in a few photographs of my work I encounter a problem. Sitting in front of the computer, staring at the monitor, I find myself unable to come to a conclusion. Of what do these images speak? Are they testimony to my need to find a compromise between the chaos in my mind and my ability to control it, to know my way around it? What should I write? How can I connect these eleven photographs?
ARTMargins is pleased to present new work by Barbara Kukovec (London/Ljubljana). All the images in the series were taken with self-made cameras, using film or paper treated with a photographic emulsion and printed in the darkroom on different surfaces. Kukovec was born in Slovenia in 1980 and has worked as an actor, dancer, and performer in a diverse range of theater and dance productions.
ARTMargins is pleased to present a series of new paintings by Dimitri Kozyrev. Kozyrev is interested in the intersection between actual, physical landscape and mental landscapes, coupled with recent world events, led him to reflect on the ruins of war and its impact on the environment. The series is titled Lost Edge.
