From Walter Benjamin (The Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction, 1936) to Roland Barthes (Camera Lucida, 1980), the 20th century has mostly taken photography as a multipliable art form. In this exhibition, two artists, Zane Mellupe and Paulina Surys, take a different stance towards photography as a unique art piece.

Studying photography since the age of 14, in Riga, London and Shanghai, Zane Mellupe conceives her artistic works as a way of " thinking in images ". She employs the photographic medium as a tool that inspires her creative process. As such, her installations are often composed of everyday objects with an added photographic element, the collision of two universes from which arise new meanings.

Paulina Surys studied at the Fine Arts School of Poland, before her studies in photography in London. Her approach to photography is inspired in classic visual references while employing a singular and modern method. Paulina Surys uses in a particular way Baryta matte paper, which was used in the 19th century for portraits, by Nadar among others. Her photographs, embellished with the stroke of her paintbrush, create an experimental universe inspired by Georges Bataille evoking eroticism, narcissism, death, manipulation, beauty and love. They become timeless photographic objects.
