ISIL AISOY KAYA Işıl Arısoy Kaya’s multimedia works are a new way of interpreting photography. But the autodidact, born in Istanbul, Turkey, is not the typical artist, either. Her career started after graduating in Business Administration and International Management, whilst teaching herself in graphic design. She soon created her own t-shirt brand “What’s Normal?” - a statement rather than a question and a tagline that sparked the encouragement and drive which lead her to the decision to build her career as a visual artist and ending her corporate life. Just like juxtaposing different tools of life and lessons, Işıl is combining different frames and colours in her artworks. Part of her art implies Pop-Art samples whereas sometimes it shows more graphical aspects. Her conceptual portraits and places question the nature of the creation of art. None of her photographs are really what the viewer thinks he sees - she wants to distract viewers and invite them to interact with the artist to give the viewer the possibility to take part in a creative moment. Long Time No See series explains the effort to reach the Loving One. It is the journey of the seeker. It is the story of delusion and devotion of the passenger. The Lover is in pain but still continues to walk even the mind burns the heart, insists to carry forward to reach the arms of the Loved One to become One. This body of ours is just a temporary home. We came to this physical body to learn and grow. By the time we born we forget who we are and we always feel something is missing. We were One once and we feel separated after we born. Some of us are awaken and start to search for the “Home” to become One again. The artworks represent the soul and mind paradox of the spiritual. Mind tries to keep the seeker from that spiritual walk and confuses the heart. When the heart doubts, the guidance is lost. Some days are dark without light. Some days, the heart is as light as cloud. Fight continues every second the passenger lives. This will not end until the Loved One is reached and become One. There are souls that lost their contact with the heart. It is when the Lover feels so much pain because does not understand why there is a heavy stone in the guts. It is when the Lover becomes harsh and sometimes numb. And this is when the mind attacks. This is when the Lover feels separated. But the Lover should always remember though the feeling is separation the reality is Unity. Love is always there with the Lover.

  • LES NIVAUX

    Pascale & Thierry Nivaux, artist-duo from France, have traded their camera for a scanner - and they inherently adapted it. Its the perfect tool for their artistic research. Each subject is placed on or under of the flatbed scanner. It adds a unique touching impression to the photographic image and gives off specific light. Their large-scale photographs are overflowing with details and accuracy despite having an

    extremely shallow field of depth and a lack of perspective. The longer the scanning process goes on, the larger the photograph will get until it becomes a monumental work. The scanned picture abandons depths and distances and thus turning into a palpable image. The shots light is intriguing and the volumes, colours and details are sublime to the scan. They dont use any artifices. A piercing truth comes from within the images. Les Nivauxs photographs interrogate the nature and the position of the reality in a world of sham and virtuality. The scanning becomes a philosophy of art and it will always be a part of Les Nivaux. Just like the 19th centurys photography expeditions, they are travelling around the world with this technologic tool on board of their truck transformed into a mobile studio.
