Retrospective by Alexis de VILAR

ALEXIS DE VILAR

About the author, Alexis de Vilar

His perfectly composed images immerse us in a sweetness of life… Paradoxically, Alexis de Vilar, while removing himself from current fashions, produces contemporary photographs, with soul, a timeless soul! How can we not hear the music he clearly loves when he uses titles like « Asia song », « Swahili song », « African song » ?

He only portrays women as sublime, perfect. You see them but you don’t hear them. The children, the vahinés, the men that surround them live in the Paradise that these photographs offer us. He also shows a penchant for what are called primitive worlds. Tribes on the verge of disappearing or already vanished. Women, men, elders, children, wild animals … a wealth of icons!

THE DARKNESS

THE DARKNESS

In The Gallery would like to invite you to the exhibition The Darkness with Carsten Ingemann.

Carsten Ingemann’s artistic practice unfolds in the space between tradition and a psychological space less easily defined. Darkness is at the centre of his endeavour, with all the complex connotations it evokes. The landscapes conjured by the artist are made visible through the extended eye of the camera and the long exposure technique he employs. Thus, his works reveal the beauty and mystery of that which under normal circumstances remains hidden.

His works represent an alternative view of Denmark,  focusing on the silent outskirts in contrast to the bustle of the city.  As a result, the pictures are an accentuation of the inherently local, which still exists in a global world.

To his fine art practice, Carsten Ingemann brings a certain sensibility towards his subject matter, honed during his more than three decade long career as a renowned photographer, documenting political events, conflicts and war zones from around the world.
