Olivia Stonner
Photographer

I graduated from The School of Visual Arts in 2010 with a BFA in Photography. I work with film and use both medium and large format cameras. I choose to do traditional dark room prints or ink jet prints on hand crafted, digitally coated, Japanese Kozo paper.

My work is about perspective and how often we choose to look at structures, objects and even nature the same way repeatedly. I force the viewer to look at these objects differently. Skewing the scale and perspective serves to create the illusion of uncertainty and heightens your perception of your surroundings. In an absolute state of consciousness I ask the viewer to consider themselves one with their environment and to transcend time and space and allow reality to dissipate.

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…)
  • Georg Kussmann: FRG

    MACK

    The German dramatist Heiner Müller observed that German history lies as if smothered by a rheumatism blanket: beneath there is warmth and stagnation, just enough to give the impression all is well, while the peripheries are freezing. Georg Kussmann’s photographs in FRG were created under this metaphoric blanket. Made in the Federal Republic of Germany over a single summer, they depict everyday scenes of life, work, and leisure (more…)
  • Zhanna Kadyrova: Border Memory
    Feb 17 – May 5, 2024
    Uppsala Art Museum
    Uppsala, Sweden
    Ukrainian artist Zhanna Kadyrova lets urban materials such as asphalt, concrete and tiles bear witness to history’s many layers of rearrangements, visions and shattered dreams. The artist works in a post-minimalist tradition, and the spatial installations refer both to utopian movements and to how abstraction in art is linked to the modern project. Since Russia’s full-scale invasion in 2022, Kadyrova’s art has focused entirely on psychological and sociological aspects of the war. (more…)
