Gerard Petrus Fieret : un photographe méconnu et fantasque exposé au BalC'est un personnage hors norme que nous présente Le Bal : Gerard Petrus Fieret. Grande figure de la scène hollandaise, Fieret était un photographe autodidacte qui n'hésitait pas à citer Rembrandt comme inspiration.
Son oeuvre totalement subversive, et parfois très proche de l'art brut, pourrait être résumée, selon Diane Dufour, commissaire de l'exposition, par l'adage « Je vois donc je suis ». Pour preuve les nombreuses signatures de l'artiste, présentes sur beaucoup de ses oeuvres. Car Fieret a cherché à identifier ses photographies jusqu'à la fin de sa vie, parfois de manière presque pathologique. Et il ne s'est jamais considéré comme un photographe. Au contraire,...
Gerard Petrus Fieret au BAL
Gerard Petrus Fieret
DU 26 MAI au 28 AOÛT 2016
« Ce que je recherche en photographie c’est l’anarchie : dans le contexte d’une société conservatrice, mes photographies sont agressives. une vie intense, de passion – une passion saine pour la vie –, c’est cela dont elles parlent. » G. P. Fieret
L’œuvre de Gerard Petrus Fieret (1924-2009) est l’une des plus étranges et subversives qui aient été produites dans les années 1960 en Europe. LE BAL consacre à ce poète, peintre et photographe néerlandais, la première exposition monographique présentée hors de son pays natal. De 1965 – date à laquelle il se procure son premier appareil, un Praktiflex &nda...
Duo Exhibition of Gerard Fieret & Tiane Doan Na ChampassakTiane Doan na Champassak (1973), a French photographer of Asian descent, currently based in Provence, was first recognized for his documentary work (Agence Vu) before exploring a more artistic approach. His current photography is driven by a fascination for gender identity issues, revealing a decidedly aesthetic sensibility. Pushing his work to the point of abstraction and fascinated by acts of faith demonstrations and the question of identity, he continues to explore many aspects of human creativity.
For each body of work, print or publication, he seeks out the most appropriate techniques, materials and formats.
In this upcoming exhibition Kahmann Gallery will show two series of work by Champassak, Sunless and Spleen & Ideal. All images of both series were taken in Thailand between 2010 and 2013, and form a part o...
VERGE MIAMI : DUTCH NUDES
“DUTCH NUDES” Photographers:
ED VAN DER ELKSEN (The Netherlands 1925 - 1990)
Ed van der Elsken was born in Amsterdam in 1925. Inspired and shaped by his relationships, extensive international travels and work abroad, Van der Elsken was known as the “enfant terrible” of Dutch photography. A talented photographer and filmmaker, he documented his meetings with people in photographs and films for more than 40 years. He preferred to photograph striking individuals and would often attract the subject’s attention before taking the picture. Many of his subjects therefore look straight into the lens. His first photography book, Love on the Left Bank, was published during his Parisian period in 1956 and instantly made him world-famous. Some 20 photography books followed. In 1988 Van der Elske...
The Tireless Epic, Fieret - Tichý - HeyboerTheir personal universe and love of women were the starting points for an incessant stream of images showing the world as they saw it. All three were trained artists but entirely self-taught as photographers. This autumn, the Hague Museum of Photography is showing the work of a trio of eccentrics regarded by the photographic world as ‘outsiders’: Dutchmen Gerard Petrus Fieret and Anton Heyboer plus Czech artist Miroslav Tichý. The three are linked not only by their chosen themes, but also by an obstinately idiosyncratic way of life. This exhibition brings their highly singular worlds together. Its title, The Tireless Epic, comes from a poem written by Fieret.
Gerard Petrus Fieret (1924-2009) studied drawing and painting at the Royal Academy of Art (KABK) in The Hague immediately before and after the...
