Caroline Mauxion
from November 11th 2017 to December 16th 2017

Caroline Mauxion summons up an abstract world by wilfully turning away from the mimetic function in photography to focus chiefly on the medium’s indicial nature. She considers her own images as objects to be manipulated and arranged in space, and her photographs—based on residua from various projects, trials, explorations—become mutable material. Using in-situ actions, along with interventions upon the image itself or on the light capture, Mauxion initiates a transformative process between her snapshots and the locus of their production or dissemination. Her multidisciplinary approach broaches photography, installation, performance, and video.

Teja Gavankar
from November 11th 2017 to December 16th 2017

Teja Gavankar’s work takes shape, on the one hand, in the practice of drawing, both on paper and in space, and, on the other, in her spatial interventions. Gavankar subtly transforms urban space by observing its composition, texture, and form, and investing it with a new perception, philosophy, and psychology. She is interested in spaces that comprise evolving situations and that allow for her own self-projection. Of a minimal yet all too compelling nature, these interventions, punctuated by objects from her surroundings, are a reflection of her experience of a given place.
