A Place Aside: Artists and Their Partners

Bloomington, Indiana. Since the invention of photography, the camera has been turned towards loved ones to document birthdays, vacations, graduations, and other significant events.
For each of the couples included in this exhibition, however,photography is not a method of simply recording events but a means of exploring their partnership through the creation of art.
While the photographs serve as documents of a couple’s life together, they also reveal the trust and respect that each partner has for the other.
A Place Aside, organized by guest curator Garrett Hansen, features images from nine contemporary photographers working in the United States, China, Brazil, and Japan:
Jeff Moerchen, Alexis Culver, Audim Culver, Gustavo Gomes, Yuhki Touyama, Fabien Seguin, Julie Barnofski, Garrett Hansen, and Tanya Bezreh.

Opening reception: Friday, September 28, 5-7 pm, The Kinsey Institute, Morrison Hall.
This event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be provided.
Lecture: Closer: Weston, Callahan, and Cameron Photograph their Partners Friday, September 28, 12:15.1 pm, Indiana University Art Museum.
Garrett Hansen, photographer and guest curator of A Place Aside, will discuss the role of relationships in the work of three photographers represented in the IU Art Museum’s collection and their influence on his own work.
Prints by Edward Weston, Harry Callahan, and Julia Margaret Cameron are included in Intimate Models: Photographs of Husbands, Wives, and Lovers, on view at the IU Art Museum from September 11. December 31, 2012.
Garrett Hansen’s photographs of his wife, Ellen, are included in A Place Aside.

Photographs depict no more than what is visible. Yet at the same time they possess the uncanny ability to reveal the invisible. Just as the hands of the clock mark the linear passing of time, photography can mark our memory, consciousness, desires, and emotions. Beyond merely documenting the visible world, one of the photographers’ roles is to create a space for reflecting and gazing upon such invisibilities. This exhibition introduces the work of four emerging Japanese female photographers who engage these invisibilities from various angles.

Tomoe Murakami stares at the boundary between the visible and the invisible through her ephemeral landscapes which are often filled with mist or clouds. By erasing and scratching the surface of her prints, Yuki Tawada uncovers a strength and inter-dependence which transcends the people and cities captured in her images. It can be said that Murakami traces the limit of photography from the inside while Tawada does so from the outside. In snap-shot photographs by Yuhki Toyama, everyone and everything look isolated while longing for the other. This is how she reveals the deeper darkness which swallows an individual even as he/she is not willing to admit it. Ai Takahashi’s continuous shooting of remote rural villages and their inhabitants illuminates the accumulated experience of place that runs perpendicular to our urban linear experience of time.

The title of this exhibition CONTEMPLATION comes from the Latin contemplatio meaning the “act of looking at” something. In turn this stems from contemplo meaning “to gaze attentively, observe.” More important is that its original meaning was “to mark out a space for observation (as an augur does).” These photographers, too, delineate from, within the real world a space for observation and contemplation of the invisible. Viewing ourselves in this consecrated space we cannot help but reconsider our individual and collective pasts and futures.
