OFFSCREEN invites you to its second edition from October 18-22 2023 at The Grand Garage Haussmann, an incredible new venue in the center of Paris. OFFSCREEN will present a curated selection of solo shows dedicated to installations, still or moving images.
For OFFSCREEN, Katja Stuke presents various portraits photographed between 2000 and 2020, from the Supernatural series, whose highly ambivalent title refers both to the faces photographed and to the photographs themselves. Through this series, the artist works on the tension captured by the photo, whether it’s the tension before the pistol shot in this portrait of a woman whose extremely colorful outfit fades into the background, or the tension that lies before an athlete’s jump. This tension, directly linked to an action in progress and the central object of Katja Stuke’s portraits, initiates a process that can no longer be reversed.
Katja Stuke is presented by Florian Ebner, Director of Photography at the Centre Pompidou, who has supported the artist’s work for many years. read more »»
