Exhibition: Pôle Image, Rouen, France

By Peter Granser

12 03 2010 – 22 05 2010
Opening 12 March, 7pm

Granser’s new photographs and videos from a psychiatric hospital make do without any freak-show thrills or horror scenarios. They unfold their intensity through the photographer’s reserved gaze and intimate familiarity with his subject. These are compositions made up of nuances, of suggestions and presentiments, images that do not show the grimacing mask of insanity, bur rather its human countenance. It is an eerily familiar face. We know it from the mirror and sense that the way there can be short, shorter than we think. From normality to madness. (Tobias Wall)
