The exhibition Up and Down the Mountain is devoted to contemporary local photography, focused on the fundamental link between the artist’s own biography and his or her photographic oeuvre. The exhibition’s basic assumption is that the artist’s personal narrative exists, among other elements, in the space between reality and its representations. This is a significant element in creating the genetic code generating the artist’s subjective observation of objective reality. The artist’s unique perspective is reflected not only in the selection of the subject of the photograph, but in a series of choices accompanying each and every photographic act: choice of camera, format, lens, perspective, and the other elements comprising the final image.
The total of all of the personal gazes making up the current exhibition depict locale, a land, a path, from the lowland, and up and down the mountain. It is neither a circuit nor an entire route, but an act of marking out and coming back, characterizing many of the projects from which the works on view were selected. It is from the biography of each participating artist that the return is derived, the need to come back and make a photograph at the same place, again and again, to return and make more and more careful observations from the site. It is only in this way that the subjects of the photograph are transformed, transitioning from their existence in an average mundane location to existing in a particular, differentiated way.
The repetition leads to the subject of the photograph being severed from its time and place, whether it is landscape, place, or object. This constant return characterizes all of the photographs on view, which do not focus on the culture or history of the subject but in the way in which it activates the artist. This is photography that embodies the past and present simultaneously: it is direct, seemingly flat, yet reflects the photographer’s inner world. The works on view differ greatly from one another, yet in all of them, photography is the means of making a subjective experience come into being and delineate the exclusivity of that experience.​
