The inaugural photobook from fine art photographer Laura Pannack. Youth Without Age and Life Without Death marks the first chapter of a long running project in which the artist uses large format photographs, polaroids, drawings and personal notes to grasp at the intagible and explore her connection with time itself.

Artist Statement:
This project is a response to my need to escape, adventure and roam in reaction to internal pressure I feel that time is moving too fast. It seems like a shared experience that hours, days and weeks pass and we can’t recall them, life continues and time slips away. My adventure began in Romania. The strong sense of timelessness, tradition and untouched scenery mirrored my desire to stop time. I soon stumbled across this local story which perfectly echoes the many questions that I have. This is a photographic exploration of the fabric of time, and of the people, places and landscapes I encountered in Romania, drawing directly on this famous mythology and a sense of a temporal place to offer a view on the fragility of life.

Alternating between reality and fantasy, the photographs respond to a feeling of separation from the modern world and play with the notion of fiction and the present moment. Like a web of nostalgia and resistance, all the signs of temporality come to bear in objects that are charged with tensions of permanence and impermanence. Time elsewhere is relentless but here something of it is left behind.

    In 1978 Grey Crawford created a body of colour photographic work that was so radical in its aesthetic and technique that few people to this day understand how it was made. Chroma documents late 70s Los Angeles in a period of radical urban transformation. Scenes of vernacular architecture, demolition sites and everyday places are contrasted with graphic forms that float on the surface and sit within the image. (more…)

    Mudam
    Luxembourg

    We all have ideas of what a contemporary art museum should be. Those who founded Mudam Luxembourg, for example, envisioned a museum that would encompass many aspects of contemporary culture, such as art, design and architecture. While one believes the museum to be a place for the presentation of modern art, others view it as a showcase for Luxembourgish creation. And some see Mudam as a space for collectivity, for openness, for events and an experimental approach. (more…)

  • Mara Palena: Oikeiôsis
    Publication
    Witty Books

    The knowledge of one’s inner self as the sole tool for self-fulfillment, for stoically embracing the human condition in all its turmoils – that is what ancient Greeks used to call Oikeiôsis. The same word was chosen by Mara Palena to call a project that unfolds over the duration of existence. The analog images shot by the artist from her childhood to today do not follow any external precept. (more…)
