Uta Barth

Uta Barth was born in Berlin in 1958 and lives and works in Los Angeles. Having worked for well over two decades, Barth has come to occupy a truly singular position in contemporary photography. Having made visual perception itself the subject of her work her images may appear empty as they, with blurred backgrounds and cropped frames capture incidental and fleeting moments. By deconstructing the conventions of visual representation she draws attention to the periphery and to the limits of human vision.

More about the artist

John Kleckner

The American artist John Kleckner, born in Iowa in 1978, has devoted 15 years to drawing. His name has become synonymous with paper-based technical perfection that is as graceful as it is inscrutable. An elegant interplay of dynamic lines, myriad dots and subtle shading invades the carrier of mostly modest size. Frequently executed in simple ink or graphite, occasionally in gentle watercolor, Kleckner’s graphic ciphers are woven into intriguing compositions, where the artist builds on a visual idiom once popular with hippies, while deconstructing it with enigmatic detail.

Sandberg was educated at Trent Polytechnic in England where the American photographers and artists Thomas Joshua Cooper and Minor White were among his teachers. For more than 30 years Sandberg photographed, and simultaneously lay the foundation for the professional photo environment that Norway is known for today.

Anna Camner

Born in Stockholm, 1977. Lives and works in Stockholm.

Anna Camner is a Swedish figurative painter whose alluring compositions of objects, materials and organic shapes are marked with an air of familiarity while paradoxically not appearing entirely identifiable. The motifs are far from apparent rendering a sense of ambiguity and mystique in the midst. With an affinity for found or discarded material, Camner finds beauty and aesthetical qualities in what might not appear particularly eye-catching or desirable. Plastic wrapping soiled with finger prints and used preservatives are equally delicately and seductively depicted. Almost taking on the role of a clinical scientist, details are magnified, accentuated and exposed. Also a recurring element are renditions of organically found repetitive patterns, a notion Camner has consistently and virtually obsessively dealt with in her practice.

Camner graduated from the Royal Institute of Art, Stockholm, in 2003 and has exhibited internationally since. Her work has previously been exhibited in solo shows in London and New York, and featured in The International Biennial of Contemporary Art (BIACI) in Cartagena, Colombia in 2014. In conjunction with being awarded the prestigious annual Beckers Art Award in 2017, her work was exhibited at Färgfabriken, Stockholm, Sweden. Camner is participating in a group show in Mumbai, India, in 2019.
