Armand Quetsch & Caecilia Tripp

Whether the images come in black and white, are positives or negatives, this series is above all an invitation to follow the artist’s footsteps in a singular meandering.
The photographs of Armand Quetsch, caught in a slow and repetitive flow, taken close to his home with an almost automatic gesture, present an ode to the photographic gaze. Far from any romantic or intellectualizing posture, his approach is primitive, almost devoid of any intention, without a pre-established concept, without desire. And it is precisely in this that his medium offers enchantment.
“Liquid Earth” is an exploration of the invisible and the tangible on shifting ground, leaving behind
grounds of certainty and fixed identities. “Liquid Earth” builds up a “poetics of relations” and migration
through seismology and tectonic plates, connecting local grounds with the volcano Nyiragongo situated in the Congo as one of the largest active lakes of volcanic lava in the world.

Letz’Arles: Lisa Kohl & Daniel Reuter

This summer 2021 and on the occasion of a fourth participation in the Rencontres de la photographie d´Arles, Lët’z Arles is presenting two projects : Providencia by Daniel Reuter and ERRE by Lisa Kohl.
Both artists were selected for Arles’ festival by a jury of international photography experts which provided an opportunity to contemplate their art from new perspectives, providing both of them with a due place within the European Month of Photography and the possibility to exhibit other works within EMOP programmes. Following the show in Arles, both exhibitions – Providencia and ERRE – will be presented at the official opening of the new contemporary art space Esch Konschthal where photography will be one of the major art forms to be exhibited.
