The Directors of Thomas Dane Gallery are pleased to announce two concurrent exhibitions that explore the interrelation between photography and architectonic forms.

About

These two artistic media have been intimately inter-related since the birth of photography when the French inventor Nicéphore Niépce documented the facades and rooflines of a group of buildings in his 1826 work View from the Window at Le Gras.

In Luisa Lambri’s third exhibition with the gallery, the Italian photographer shifts her attention from her previous concern with the light and space of modernist architecture to an investigation of the topography of the skin of abstract post-war modernist sculpture. Featuring new bodies of photographs that look at the works of Donald Judd, Lygia Clark, Charlotte Posenenske, and Barbara Hepworth, Lambri continues her poetic exploration of our phenomenological experience of man-made forms. 

Taking its cue from Luisa Lambri’s photographic explorations of sculptural form, the exhibition Blind Architecture, curated by Douglas Fogle, brings together over twenty artists who each in their own way examine the liminal intersection of photography, sculpture, and architecture. Taking its title from Kasimir Malevich’s description of his architektons – geometric, quasi- architectural maquettes lacking apertures and hence “blind” – this exhibition brings together a group of historical and contemporary artists who each in their own way explore this notion of “blind architecture” found at the intersection of the poles offered to us by Niépce and Malevich. Bound by neither the traditional structural limits of medium nor content, these artists explore the interrelationship of architecture, the medium of photography, as well as the realms of drawing and sculpture.
