Agape Charmani for Art-Sheep

Featuring works by Elliott Erwitt, Steve Fitch, Robert Heinecken, Shai Kremer, Jan Lukas, Bill Owens, Brian Ulrich, Michael Wolf, Jeff Brouws, Hugh Brown, TR Ericsson and Alexander Zhitomirsky, Words Matter is a show that explores how words matter in a person’s everyday life.

Robert Koch Gallery presents an exhibition with works of a wide art range. From WW II’ political photo-collages by Alexander Zhitomirsky to Jeff Brouw’s voyaging photography. The images’ showpiece is always the depicted text, whether it’s a road sign or an artistic creation, while the locations and background sets differentiate accordingly.

This collection of conceptual works draws the attention of the viewer with its variety and multi-subjectivity. Every image tells a different story, a story that each artist either found or provoked. People, neighborhoods and buildings are captured as simple observers and supporters of the text-piece, whether the artist purposely created it, photographed it or found it later on his photograph.

The interaction between the text and its surroundings creates a dynamic result that works both in total and for each image on its own. The viewer’s experience is a process of seeing, examining and finding the facts and meanings of the words inside the images and why -and to whom, they matter.

 

Words Matter runs until May 2, 2015 at Robert Koch Gallery, San Fransisco
