A geography that is increasingly inhuman and destructive is the central theme of the work of photographer Alessandra Rehder. Based in London, the artist is actually a restless traveler who, to meet and mingle with the different landscapes and human realities of countries such as Cambodia, India, Indonesia, Philippines, Jamaica, Jordan, Japan, Thailand, Turkey and West Papua (politically the province of Indonesia), sensitive and unsettling records produced as much people as of landscapes. Are jobs resulting from these expeditions, as those who belong to your first exhibition in Paris all eyes of the world ", in which depicts children from different realities, the artist presents at the Cultural Center Post Office from the day 19 August. The exhibition is curated by Wagner Barja and follows playing until 8 October.
Barja highlights the subtraction technique employed his photographs as something that distinguishes the work of artist. "The use of an experimental plastic vocabulary differs his compositions of simple documentation. This narrative is built in line with the title of the exhibition. After being expanded, the pictures pass through the Act of cutting and assembling, what turns the flat surface in bas-relief. From this action, the concept of formal jumps in the eyes "subtraction, says curator, Director of the National Museum of Brasília. To Barja, with this subtle and delicate gesture, in which the overlap of small indentations are gently stuck about photography with five pins mm height, the images become three-dimensional and Alessandra calls attention to the issues "of the excluded and the decline in nature".
For the first time, However, Since he started expose their bright images of specimens of flora from around the world, Alessandra, In addition to subtract and overlap in the same image creating forests "superexuberantes", Displays the images emptied of leaves. "I bring, and, a look at dubious about technology, launching a reflection about the possibility of her supply or not a transformation and solution to what we're doing to the environment ", scores.
Already the series featuring people photographed, as all eyes of the world, Open a window here not for a nature that is no longer there, but for the reality of a series of communities of countries with human development indices (HDI) Netherlands. This "Inhumane Geography", in the words of curator Wagner Barja, is marked by the withdrawal of elements like buckets, pipes, toys and food. The artist explains: "During my stay in the communities observed in each registered photo which was your best problem to be worked and, then, subtraía an element that symbolize ". In the pictures of Indonesia, for example, whose major problem observed in your immersion is the toilet, buckets, pipes and drinking water were subtracted and placed in a plane behind that those human elements inhabit. The photographer signals, and, the deficit in space. "In India, There are many orphans, missing school. You can see in the images from there the withdrawal of food, wallet and toys ", complete the photographer. The issue of housing, with homeless and substandard housing will be represented by images captured by photographer in Brazil and in West Papua.
The series All eyes of the world is presented in this individual in small images Msgs, composing a mosaic of childhood in countries where Alessandra worked in social activities. In them, looks of children from different countries registered for the artist mix curiosity and joy characteristic for children to distrust and pain and, and, They question the possibility of living in fact this phase of life before the social conditions imposed. Alessandra considers that has never been unequal treatment given to children and, with the series, invites us to reflect on whether it is possible to preserve the innocence in these realities, leading us, with sensitivity, inside of these looks.
