These pictures were taken by Thora Johansen during a stay with friends in a villa in Canneto Pavese at Christmas holidays time in 1974. At New Year’s Eve Hreinn asked Thora to make a photo of a jump just before midnight, one on the stroke of twelve ‘o clock and one after the stroke.

On behalf of his solo exhibition at (((R))) Rozenstraat in Amsterdam in 2020 with the help of the Mondriaan Fonds an edition was made from the original vintage prints from 1975 shown above.
In 2018 the original A6 photos were put on the website of Galerie van Gelder for the first time ever, with click-on HRes files. All these years they were glued-in in a family photo book of Thora K. Johansen who took the pictures, and as such only privately accessible between 1975 and 2018. In 2019 the digital images were taken from the website for making an edition out of it. Hence the colour differences between the edition and the vintage prints. For the production of the print edition the reddish tone in the analogue photos was replaced by a more blueish one. The images have been cropped, mainly at the bottom part of the photos, apparently to bring the proportions back to the double A4 standard size.

KLAUS VOM BRUCH ?, no title, ca 1981-1985 [VHS cassette + 4 photo’s]

KLAUS VOM BRUCH ?, no title, ca 1981-1985
VHS cassette box, photo copy, 4 Fuji Color photo prints (each 8.8 x 12.6 cm)
splendid condition
unknown publisher
condition: splendid, although one photo has two weak corner folds

For this item an artist’s name is not at hand. It is attributed to Klaus vom Bruch but it cannot be approved. At some point in the eighties I got hold on this VHS cassette including four vintage photo prints. I have a vague remembrance that I got it from Vereniging van Videokunstenaars founded in Amsterdam in 1982. Somewhere I have the idea that this cassette was a kind of promotion material of a video film to be launched soon. Hence a lacking VHS video tape. KvG

analogue press photo

This black and white photo was taken of an installation Hannes van Es made as part of his solo exhibition at Galerie van Gelder ‘Werken op papier: 1982 – 1987’. For the first time he used four Vanes acrylic paint cans as weights, placed at the corners of a paper floor work that he had covered with blobs of black Vanes paint. The latter was specifically made by a Spanish company for the purpose of his thick layered paintings.

After his works had been installed in GvG (notice the dusty knees of his trousers) on Saturday 10 June 1986 Hannes van Es requested me to take a picture of him under a sculpture named “Vehicle” (1986), made of iroko wood, ivory, gold, silver, resina and lava granite. A small sterling silver crown above the artist’s head was the basic idea of having this photo taken. KvG

Valérie Belin’s (1964) photographs objects, such as glasses, silverware, Venetian mirrors, car motors, or animal carcasses. And also portraits. The concept of her method is simple; taking a photograph is a matter of light and exposure, then the subject seems to change of character.

The portrait photograph ‘Black Woman II’ by Valérie Belin shows a young woman with a remarkably smooth face. How is it possible that someone is made up so smoothly. Later I was told that this is the head of a mannequin made up as faithfully as possible as a human being. Every time I look at it I must try hard to see it as a doll with a wig and face paint. Odd.
