Tentoonstelling 'En Passant'- CBK Dordrecht, 2007
Serial Photography (2008) Exhibition in 2x2 Projects, Amsterdam
Artists: Peter Cleutjens, Hans Eijkelboom, Katrin Korfmann
In "Serial Photography" 2x2projects presents three contemporary artists that will show recent work. All three have a documentary photographic result taken from public space. In this exhibition it will become evident that the serial aspect in their work is unmistakably adding new layers.
Peter Cleutjens takes the roll of a street choreographer. With a predefined number of exposures and his magic ability to predict a possible outcome of a performance by random people on a random street, he makes us witness short stories. The act, captured by his camera, takes a beautiful and sometimes hilarious turn once the sequence of photos has started. The result of such performance, when presented as a set of images, become a frozen stop motion animation, a short dance, or a mini theatrical play. The simple fact like order of hand gestures of people discussing, the change of shade of large panels being hauled at a construction site, the splash of rainwater a car throws at pedestrians become a recognizable fragment of life extracted within a few seconds between the first and the last image of a sequence.
