"The shadow does not exist.
What you call shadow is the light that you cannot see"
Galerie à la Rivière will witness the birth of Trilight Collective, formed by three photographers from Barcelona (Spain): Fran Martí, Juan Mas-Bagá and Miguel Soler-Roig. They present "Between the Shadows", a photography exhibition along with the guest artists Joachim Hildebrand (Germany) and Kim Weston (USA).
Between the shadows is a heterogeneous and eclectic show that opens the door to the viewer’s imagination, giving equal weight to what is shown and to what is suggested in different levels of representation. Shadows are the link between each of the different series from these five artists, focusing on various themes.
Miguel Soler-Roig and Kim Weston find charm in the nude figure as the embodiment of emotions, seeking the sculptural use of light in black and white as their strategy to enhance the expression and the subtlety. Juan Mas-Baga, dealing with the same subject, makes use of colour, textures and shades to raise his models, wrapped in decadent scenarios.
The scenario is precisely the main element in the images of Fran Martí, again in black and white. The atmospheres are disturbing and ambiguous; the shadows hide and reveal uncertain locations. Joachim Hildebrand focuses on dwellings, which are essential sites of our life. The shadows on the buildings elicit manifold associations. They refer to the past, to the memories and to the dreams of the residents.
Changing realities, ours or from others, but somehow always dark ones.
