Rituals
Gøneja

Opens: Friday 2 October, 2020 at 7pm

Rituals is the first, self-curated solo show of Berlin-based photographer Gøneja, opening at tête. It presents an entirely new portfolio of portraits, nudes and landscapes, exploring a few subjects closely acquainted with the artist and some sites that have resonated with his spiritual life.

The portraits are built around specific themes relevant to the lives of the subjects photographed, such as: reptile nature, Sufism, opioid intoxication or Norse mythology, to mention a few. Keeping a focus on the character, such elements appear differently - as narrative, hidden symbols, or performance.

The title refers to the approach employed while creating these photographs - where hermetically sealed spaces allowed the artist and his subjects to create unique rites for the camera. It alludes also to the deeply subjective and spiritually-charged nature of the themes around which the subjects are portrayed - those invisible forces that guide and act upon their lives.

The opening of the show coincides with the launch of the 108-page,
equally-titled photo-book. This comprehensive version of the portfolio features additional images and subjects, text-extracts from the individuals photographed expanding on some of the ideas behind their portraits, as well as a philosophical essay on Chaos energy from an invited writer.

The show will also include some of the artist’s recent experiments with totemic sculpture.

"Escape"

Collective photography exhibition held by PEP - the Photographic Exploration Project
 
Through an international call for entries, PEP invited artists from all over the world to show how their photographic practice can be used as a way to escape from certain realities. The various limitations we face in everyday life, whether related to a particular situation or to how society is structured, often lead us to look for ways of overcoming them. While some of us seek refuge in remote places or in nature, others are exploring means that allow a certain distortion of reality and the creation of a parallel, dreamlike universe. The motivations behind this search for evasion are numerous and different for everyone: escaping from our mundane way of seeing, from the daily routine, from the city, getting away from one’s thoughts, from certain circumstances, longing for spirituality, and many more.
Is escapism a synonym of dreaming? Can the photographic medium, which by essence reproduces the present, become a tool to get away from it? Can it provide a means of breaking away from the past? From one's memories or feelings? These questions have been explored in many different ways by artists who responded to PEP's open call. This exhibition will present their respective visions on the topic.
