The artcore journal series Installed are posts for the artcore (b)log that include written information provided by the institution, gallery, or artist’s website along with a selection of images taken by an artcore correspondent. The initiative is to provide readers with the photographer’s unique perspective of exhibitions, performances, and/or events in situ. The artcore (b)log is a platform for new series that are posted continuously, in addition to the biannual issues but do not necessarily reflect the current theme. If you are interested in participating as a correspondent for the Installed series on the artcore (b)log please contact us directly for more information.
Walls and Landscapesat Jackie Klempay | Brooklyn, NY
Sept. 14- Oct. 13, 2013
Jackie Klempay presents an exhibition of new work by Abdolreza Aminlari. Using a minimalist approach to photography, Aminlari reduces space, object, and location to its essence. The modification of conventional views allows for deeper exploration of physical, as well as subconscious, territory.
Walls and Landscapes, the two bodies of work displayed, both amplify shape and pattern by cropping out reference to the familiar and removing indicators of scale. White walls shown at close range quietly make room for new meaning. When flattened by the camera lens, the corners of a white structure are reduced to rectangular shapes. Aminlari’s color photography of snowy Icelandic landscapes on a foggy day results in a wash of whites. The land, horizon, and sky meld into dreamy, abstract forms free of color.
