GALLERY IND.では、カタルーニャ出身、現在パリに活動拠点を置くベルタ・セセによります弊ギャラリーでの5回目の個展”Micro Landscapes”を開催いたします。

2016年の初個展"Macro Cosmos"では、金属の酸化面などを撮影して宇宙を浮遊する物体のように捉えた写真作品を展示、2017年"Ether's Chimies"では、オーロラを思わせる色鮮やかのペインティング作品を、2018年"Mirages"では、物の表面や剥離面を拡大して捉えた泡沫夢幻を想起させるモノクロームの連作写真を展示しました。更に、2019年は、ペンキ跡の残った木片などを接写拡大し、硫黄ガスを噴出させる火山の噴気孔のように見立てた、"Sulpha Terra"へと作品を展開してきました。今回の"Micro Landscapes (マイクロ・ランドスケープス)"においても、micro/macroという従来のコンセプトと手法を基に制作された新作のペインティング作品とその一部を撮影した写真作品を合わせて展示いたします。





 GALLERY IND. is pleased to present the 5th 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 is devoted exclusively to art since 2014.

  The artist’s work alternates between painting and photography. Berta is captivated by the Japanese principle wabi sabi, which consists in seeing in the imperfect, the modest, a form of beauty in motion, where the subject becomes another. She is also interested in the principle of correspondence between the infinitely large and the infinitely small, as in quantum mathematics and fractals. Her purpose is to lead us to appreciate the bond between detail and whole. Her work is an invitation to rediscover our environment, based on the freedom of spirit to appreciate the magic of the universe.

 Her photographs bring us closer to the real world based on the perception of its details embodied on a different scale. The artist identifies the subject with a very intimate dimension, as a fractal scientific approach to our environment and its projections. Through a macro lens, the image is filled with emotion and becomes a world in itself.

 For her 5th solo exhibition at Gallery IND., Berta Sesé exposes for the first time the full set of a photographic series, presenting at the same time the original subjects, in this case her own micro-paintings, and the corresponding macro photographs.

This new series is a revelation of dreamlike sceneries on the edge of the perceptible. Painted on adhesive tapes (utterly a wabi sabi support), her micro paintings make us think of romantic seascapes and misty horizons, of a deep blue, veiled of pink and white tones. They invite us to dive into miniature details to find out some unexpected painted landscapes, while their photographic version encompasses and transports us directly into a distant dreamy place. Two paths in a different scale to make us discover and feel the force of the infinitely large and the infinitely small that lead the cosmos where we belong.
