GALLERY IND.では、カタルーニャ出身、現在パリ在住のアーティスト、ベルタ・セセによります弊ギャラリーでの4回目の個展”SULPHA TERRA”を開催いたします。


 タイトルの”SULPHA TERRA" (英語ではsulfur earth)とは、硫気孔を意味するラテン語で、硫黄を多く含むガスを噴出する火山の噴気孔のことです。

   GALLERY IND. is pleased to present the solo exhibition of the catalan artist Berta Sesé. Born in Barcelona (Spain) and based in Paris (France) since 2002, where she did work as a fashion designer for twelve years.  She decides to devote herself exclusively to Art since 2014. The artist’s work alternates between painting and photography, two complementary media of expression without borders to her eyes.

 Her photographic work is based on the close up perception and observation of our daily life, by interpreting the details it conceals. Using the macrophotographic technique, the artist livens up the discoveries of her visions in dreamlike worlds and landscapes, fruit of the observable eye’s limits.

 Berta Sesé’s work  is inspired by the research of the infinitely small to the infinitely big, as in quantum mathematics and fractales. She leads us to appreciate  the bond between detail and whole. 


  <<SULPHA TERRA>> 作品について 

拡大写真の作品制作を続けること、 画像の編集や補正を行わず、私たちの身の回りにひっそりと存在する、浸食された様々なものや形へのリサーチから生まれる作品を追求すること。

展覧会タイトルのSulpha Terraとは、”硫黄の地”という意味のラテン語で、硫気孔として知られているものです。それは火山から発出されるガス、噴気された硫黄やその沈殿物を特徴とする、大地からの表出物を指します。これらは、硫黄塩とあいまって、黄土、黄、赤などの色合いをつけて、地表を覆います。同時に、その地表は蒸気質の大気に包まれて、混沌とした風景へと移調していきます。

Pursuing her macrophotographic work - without editing or retouching, and as a result of a research in our human environment’s erosions, barely noticeable, Berta Sesé introduces :

The Sulpha terra (in latin "land of sulfur"), nowadays known as solfatares, is a telluric manifestation characterized by volcanic gas emanations, fumaroles and important deposits of sulfur. These, together with other sulphates, cover the earth with ocher, yellow and red tints, while transposing it to confusing landscapes with a vaporous atmosphere.

With this new photographic series Berta Sesé reveals some blurred landscapes tinted with sulfur, emerged from the depths of her observations. They evoke sulfur fumes in volcanic soil, far away sanctuaries of mother nature that bring us closer to the pure beauty of our planet.

The choice of the materials used by the artist is emphasized by a watercolor style paper in order to maintain the feeling of the sfumato effect from the sulfur vapors.
