“Nico once told me that he never wants to tell anyone what his work is about, that all good art leaves space for the viewer to find his own meaning.” – Matthew Freemantle from JRNL
The exhibition is on show from 13 October 2011 to 20 November 2011, at Museum Gallery, Upper Eastside Hotel, Salt River, Cape Town.
We attended the opening last night and took some photographs – view the gallery below. For more information, please visit the Museum Gallery website, or view the press release at the bottom of the post.
MUSEUM Gallery is proud to present a new solo show by Cape Town based photographer Nico Krijno. Showcasing recent work from his eponymous book ‘On How To Fill Those Gaps’ (launching in conjunction with the exhibition) Krijno presents a collection of evocative yet thematically disparate images that cohere around his particular way of seeing the everyday world. Tightroping between the magical and the banal; the contemporary and the timeless, he creates a language of images that organise themselves according to an enigmatic rhythm unifying landscape, still life, and portraiture. The classical notion of ‘aesthetics’ as a set of rules governing beauty is disregarded in favour of creating images that evoke an indefinable atmosphere or feeling. At times staged, and at times spontaneous, Krijno’s images frequently reference their creation, establishing a new parallel reality that puts our imagination and our objective perception at loggerheads.
A selection of more than 40 framed and unframed photographs will be on sale in a range of sizes and paper grades, as well as limited edition, hand-bound copies of ‘On How To Fill Those Gaps’.
