Special Edition Prints And Sneak Peek Of New Photo Book By Judith Stenneken
20 jan 2016 by art:i:curate team
art:i:curate artist Judith Stenneken gives us a sneak peek of her new photo book entitled 'Welcome Home' and has produced a series of special edition prints in support of her new photographic project.
'Welcome Home' is a photographic series that deals with the seemingly simple fact that Henry Miller states so clearly in this quote: "It is almost banal to say so, yet it needs to be stressed continually: all is creation, all is change, all is flux, all is metamorphosis."
Stenneken uses metaphors of the journey, the voyager and the transitory spaces (like hotel rooms) to create a realm of impermanence. The concepts of departure and arrival dissolve, as the traveler keeps moving. The voyager's home becomes the hotel room and the airplane. Spaces to pause but never to dwell.
Judith's photo book will be printed with UV inks on uncoated paper and will be part of a limited edition of 350 copies. The special edition prints for the production of the book are: Triptych with Airplane, Diptych with Body, Diptych with Runway and are available on art:i:curate.
Collectors who buy one of these prints will be mentioned as patrons in the book and will receive the print and a copy of the book signed and numbered. The fundraiser will conclude on February 5th.
The release of the book will coincide with the opening of Judith's homonymous solo exhibition at Galerie f5,6 in Munich, Germany on April 28th, 2016.
Everything is ongoing and never finished. Transition is a constant condition. There is no beginning, middle and end. There is no sunset, nor is there a sunrise – instead we are the ones in constant motion. - Judith Stenneken
