yves ullens: pure nature

May 03 2018 - May 10 2018

Galerie Blue Square is pleased to present, Pure Nature, a new series of works by Belgian artist Yves Ullens.  

Statement by the artist:
The effects achieved by the movement and dance of my camera during shooting allows me to work on the motion of light. The energy of this motion is directly captured by the camera and then fixed on the photographic print without involving any other intervention. The sources of light and the play of reflections rendered by the subject provoke a visual experience closely akin to kinetic art and the experiments of Moholy-Nagy, which "use light as a formal primary factor, creating space and movement, and eliminating the central perspective of photography."

Several works will be highlighted at the Georgetown showroom of B&B Italia | Maxalto | Boffi for DC's Spring Days of Design, May 3-5, 2018.
