As Paris becomes the capital of photography in November with Paris Photo, Galerie E.G.P has decided to present its first solo exhibition of photographer Rachel Rom.
The artist is known for her black and white, cottony and often blurred photographs that boast a distinctly soft and cinematic style. Her sole reliance on the raw beauty of natural light and silver prints adds a subtle yet insightful dimension to her portraits.
In 2013, Rachel Rom participated in the group exhibition “Tarantel 1″ at the Kunstlerhaus Bethanien in Berlin, curated by Christoph Tannert. The installations Nucleus, Echo, Vector and Remanence were exploring the ideas of memories and perception through the technique of re-photography.
The installations as they were in Berlin have been brought back to life in Galerie E.G.P in Paris by the creation of a trompe l’oeil. Two exhibitions are merging, the past and the present one, the images are present as well as their reproduction. The overall effect gives a dizzying sense of infinity.
The opening took place on November 14th, 2013 and was a great success with way over a hundred people coming through, fascinated by the work and eager to learn more about the concept….
…that I was eager to explain.
The feeling of satisfaction seemed to have been shared by Severine Cattani, the scenographer who had worked extensively on the show.
The exhibition is completed by an art book that has been published by Prefere editions. It consists of a limited edition (20) art books that are completing the exhibition fully since they are a piece of it that one can take away.
In Paris, do not miss this spectacular show!
Rachel Rom, Galerie E.G.P, Paris, until December 21st, 2013
