The Kalashnikovv Gallery and Red Bull Music Acadmeny Weekender Johanneburg are pleased to present:
“NIGHTSCAPES” – A SOLO EXHIBITION OPENING BY ELSA BLEDA
Elsa Bleda, known as the creator of other-worldly images with her cinematic and dystopian aesthetic, will be exhibiting her striking night images that explore Johannesburg through her eyes.
“Elsa’s photography began as personal documentation, in the ardour of the individual archival. However, in more recent years, her work has become an artistic interface between her internal and external worlds, a compelling voice without words, an additional language within her multiple grammars; a tributary that begins and returns to the heart, like blood. A photo can hold an open-secreting, contain the double-turn of having to forget in order to remember, and this ambiguity is folded within her visions through the disquieting relationship between the opaque and the revealed.” – Bubblegum Club
