The ARTNETWORK presents the exhibition „one another“ of works by Alisa Resnik at the SCHAURAUM 11/nullnull in Vienna from March 14 through April 19, 2014.
The photo series of the Berlin photographer shows night-time scenes at old houses, greasy spoon cafés and old hotel rooms of the city. Furthermore she consistently captures special moments, captures faces, cursory sights, little gestures and thus she documents her encounter with people, which for Resnik represents the prior aspect of her work.

The photos of her series Promising Waters leave the viewer with unanswered questions as to the relationship between the state and private identity, the ties between past, present and future, and how to pinpoint the boundary between a region’s rise or fall.

Exhibition and Workshop
Micamera in Milano presents from February 14 to March 15, 2014 an exhibition with works from the series Once, Still and Forever by Jessica Backhaus .
What was once, still is and will forever remain is the artist’s infallible instinct for pictorial composition, a deftness she continues to take to new heights. Her views of ostensibly prosaic scenes open up to us a cosmos of unforeseen meanings while evoking a mood of affectionate familiarity.
