Ângela Ferreira / Boca
Ângela Ferreira examines the social and political history of territories through the prism of art and architecture. In her works, she mainly explores Europe’s complex relations with the African continent, making use of stories and references from modernist architecture, its displacement and its adaptation in Africa.
Through a selection of photographs from the CRP/’s collection, “Manifestations” endeavours to explore the semantic field of manifestation and its different occurrences that closely combine social and aesthetic forms of revelation.
Evangelia Kranioti / Les Feux d'Ulysse
For her solo exhibition at the CRP/, Evangelia Kranioti presented two series of photographs from the projects Mediterranea and Erotica, exotica, Etc. Two videos are also being presented in the second gallery, taken from the project Erotica, Exotica, Etc., which is also a feature-length film released in 2015.
Jorge Ribalta / Renaissance
Following Ribalta’s series Sierra Minera—created in 2010 in Murcia, Spain, exploring the La Unión mining region, which has been remade into a centre of flamenco culture—the Renaissance project takes the form of a tour of the industrial monuments of Nord – Pas-de-Calais. This project is based on photographic observation of a number of sites in the region,
making up significant documentation of the “renaissance” of these industrial landscapes, which are becoming monuments, museums or theme parks.
Eric Nehr / Bouton d'or [BUTTERCUP]
Since the late 1990s, Éric Nehr has been developing photographic research on the portrait, exploring the notions of alterity and beauty in society.
For this, he chooses male and female models presenting physical particularities, and takes head-and-shoulder photographs of them against coloured backgrounds. He reveals them in their singularity through precise work on light and colour, leading us to take a different view of his models.
