Antonio Panetta
The exhibition LE RETANGLE BLANC by the Italian artist Antonio Panetta consists of a number of black and white images (stills) from 16 mm film. The motifs have been chosen from different fields such as sports, landscapes and nude studies. The black and white stills are mounted vertically and horizontally and often they overlap, so that the motifs are blurred.
The result is a series of mysterious photomontages, where the cinematic realism and chronology is twisted. The artist incites us to discover the poetic potential in the discontinuity – or in a narrative without time sequence.
By isolating single images Panetta breaks the feeling of motion. Subsequently he puts the images together once more and thereby composes another, original rhythm. Thus Panetta examines and challenges both film and photography and creates a completely different expression.
LE RETANGLE BLANC has been created especially for Galleri Image, and the exhibition is Panetta’s first show in Denmark.
In addition to the photographs Panetta is showing a film at the exhibition.

Antonio Panetta is born in Italy in 1963 but lives and works in Berlin. He is educated in architecture (Florence) and art (Berlin). He has been teaching photography at the Universität der Künste, Berlin. Panetta has exhibited at the Museum Centre Vapriikki, Tampere (Finland), Museum für Photographie, Braunschweig (Germany) and Stazione di Topolò – Postaja Topolove, Grimacco (Italy). He has also made several films.

Opening: Friday 25th of May at 4 - 6 pm.
Antonio Panetta will be present.

The exhibition is supported by The Italian Cultural Institute in Denmark.
