In day and intoxication I wander. I am in that strength: the white, the white that smiles.
To my air you have come: a trembling, a vision! I know neither you nor your name. All is what it was. But you draw near: a daybreak, a soaring circle, your name.
A singer I wanted to be, to give the suffering day, give the happy a longing. A singer whose song would strike hard through the day.
And the word was nothing but sounds and light in my heart!
And all is the same dance: not to look, —
and to look: with the naked eye, to look in the eye! — clearly —
the hidden guest.
(from Resting Day 1922 by Gunnar Björling)
“The First Three Years” is a book that being lost is normal, not afraid to be afraid, more terrible is to continue to deny fear. The void in the place of the figures cut from the photographs is temporary. Eva showed that it can be filled with other layers, to collect fragments of a torn reality into pictures of the new world. Poison can be a medicine, a collage - a symbol of a person who has become whole.
one of my images from the series 'Patchwork' got selected by Diane Dufour for 'der Greif: Guest-Room'
Der Greif promotes contemporary photography, featuring the work of up-and-coming photographers and authors from around the world.
Guest Room is a monthly online exhibition with open submissions curated in real-time by personalities from the international photography scene.
Curator - June 2018
Diane Dufour is director of LE BAL in Paris, an independent platform for exhibitions, publications, ideas and education, centered on the contemporary image in all its forms – photography, video, film and the new media – founded in 2010 with Raymond Depardon. Internationally famous for the quality of its exhibitions (Anonymous, Nameless America; Topographies of War; Antoine d’Agata, Anticorps; Paul Graham; Lewis Baltz, Common Objects, Provoke – Photography in Japan 1960 – 1975, etc.), LE BAL aims to combine the visual arts with reflections on society. Ms. Dufour has designed many books on contemporary photographers, including Mark Cohen, Dark Knees; Lewis Baltz, Common Objects; Dirk Braeckman, Sisyphe; Mark Lewis, Above and Below. She also started Curators’ Day, a project exchange platform including 30 European museums. She was head of Europe Magnum Photos from 2000 to 2007.
I am working on a limited edition publication called 'The First Three Years'
The book will eventually consist of 96 pages and be printed at 140 x 180 mm format. The three projects: 'Sehnzucht', 'Sehnzucht: The Remix' and 'Interconnection' will be interspersed with short texts in six small chapters. I have been working on my first publication for some months now, together with graphic designer Amanda Butterworth. Together with artist Saskia Overzee she has made the beautiful selfpublished book 'Collective Memory'. Amanda's style really appeals to me and we have had extensive talks about the possibilities of my projects in book form. Amanda has not made it easy for the printing office Unicum (Gianotten) by processing two Japanese pages and two leporellos in the book. The whole is sewn, Swiss bound and printed on high-quality paper. By making a small edition of 250 I want to be able to offer a unique and high-quality object.

Inspired by alternative exhibition formats, possibilities of the gallery space and our flier table that gets a lot of love - our first group exhibition of 2018 will be a ‘Petersburger Hängung’ of postcards, presented on multiple tables throughout the gallery.
To all artists working with photography, video and any lens based or related media, we are providing the opportunity to be part of this experimental exhibition.

Texture in the realm of shadows
Groupshow 'Kontrapunkt' for the '48-h-Neukölln' festival from the 23rd untill the 25th of June 2017 in Berlin
Ana Bathe | Peter Ehrentraut | Aino Onia | Eva Gjaltema | Ivano Pellechia | Doreen Trittel
Originating from personal shadows, the artist group “Kontrapunkt” steers the view upon socially and politically relevant shadows. In the ambient light they illuminate texture within these shades. “Kontrapunkt” consists of six artists from different countries with their own experiences and means of expression: photography, installation, painting and words. The artists hit their particular gloomy roads and venture boldly and curiously into darkness. Thereby the artists’ different methods create a transition and elevate these shadows into the spotlight.

I will sell a limited edition of 30 from 3 different poster motives for €75 only!
The family of the Dutch photographer Eva Gjaltema comes from the Westerkwartier,
a rural area on the border between the Dutch provinces of Groningen
and Friesland, where they have been active for generations in agriculture and
raising livestock. In 2004, shortly after the death of her father, Gjaltema began to
record the lives of her grandparents, in order to preserve the family’s history,
but also to show a way of life that was dying. Using various techniques and
cameras, she expresses feelings of love, sorrow, anger and powerlessness.
For this she draws on her own images, but also documents and photographs
from the family archive and the new owners of the land. The result is a dialogue
between generations, and an ode to a way of life symbolic of the whole
countryside of the Northern Netherlands.
