Abstract:

Tragovi exists like the shimmering relic of some shamanistic ritual or communion with the divine. The Risograph printed, fold-out pages open up to unveil several possible readings of a single image. The relationships between the pulsating images continually metamorphose as a result. New meaning is assigned to a conventional world that is forced upon us from the moment of birth. An alternative view is proposed. We are invited to engage in a reawakening; to consider new interpretations of everything around us. With multi-layered images that obscure with the same power as they reveal, Tragovi challenges a defunct, tired state of consciousness. These pictures persist in our memory and linger in our minds as if to demand of us if we're actually awake or only existing in a dream. Includes the skaters: Shingo Ogura, Laurence Keefe, Katsumi Minami, Seim Miyahara, Honda, Valerie Rosomako, Malte Spitz, Nils Brauer, Louis Taubert, Koichiro Uehara, Fritz Mead, Jon Nguyen, Ryan Kehrer, Maoz Trudler, Hannes Schilling. -- artist's statement.

Since the mid 1990s Vutuc has been engaged in the punk and skateboarding community and the aesthetics and philosophies of these DIY-cultures have granted his work a distinct character. Skateboarding is an undeniable part of all this, but the board here might better be understood as a vehicle, than a sporting tool or past time. Vutuc<U+2019>s work reaffirms that the skateboarder is not a detached voyeur of urban modernity. He has to constantly engage with his environment, reinvent and make new use out of it. His gaze, like Vutuc<U+2019>s, is a nomadic one. It is always searching for things that are usable, beautiful or just plain fun, things he can invest himself in. These fragments become the raw material for stories the "mouth can never say", stories privileged for the eye. There is seldom anything monumental or grandiose in Vutuc<U+2019>s photographs. Just as in the skateboard pictures, his focus is directed on the small things surrounding him. The events he documents are therefore never the flamboyant stunts or the loud and dramatic "big moments." They are deeply affirmative and at the core of this sub-cultural scene from which his work grew. It is this realization that whatever you have grown up with, isn<U+2019>t something you are stuck with. Every situation, like the city itself, is adaptable. -- Galerie Michael Janssen.
