PEP aims at exploring the photographic language in all its aspects, photography being here considered as a way of communication using its own visual elements as pieces of a particular vocabulary.
The idea of PEP arose from a simple observation: in a context where the general interest in the photographic medium has never been so vivid and where remarkable works are flourishing every day, it is often not easy for emerging talents to find the right opportunity to show their work. That’s why PEP wishes to give the chance for new voices of photography to gain exposure and recognition by showing their work on the international stage and contributing to Berlin, Brussels and Lisbon’s vibrant art scenes.
Transition is the process of changing from one state or condition to another. The moment of the in-between is often very special.
For this new exhibition, we invite artists to consider ways in which photography can explore this concept. The fields in which the notion of transition can apply are numerous: politics, society, biology, culture, environment, climate, psychology, technology, architecture, and many more. It can be considered in a global perspective or related to one’s personal story, being for instance a formal, physical or mental transformation regarding gender, status or age.
All approaches of the subject are welcome. More than anything, we are looking for works that open up new perspectives or ways of thinking.
The selected artists will take part in a collective exhibition at the gallery of “Peinture fraîche” in Brussels in June 2020.
