Galerie E.G.P presents Fragments, a solo exhibition by photographer Rachel Rom, from October 24 until December 20, 2014.

Rachel Rom’s photographs are like still images from a movie. Often blurred or distant, the characters who inhabit them are revealed to us, while escaping our gaze at the same time. Rachel Rom seems to have captured their trace rather than their presence. The raw beauty of her portraits is intensified by her attachment to natural light when shooting and to silver print.

By re-photographing in situ her own pictures or found images from her personal archive, Rachel Rom also questions the status of the photographic image. This mise en abyme invites us to meditate on our relationship with this medium, the emotions it can convey, memory and time.

With the exhibition Fragments, the artist carries on with such research. She invites us to (re)discover her work, by presenting fragments from various series that are themselves fragmented, along with a new video, in a site-specific installation created for Galerie E.G.P.
