Seven different statements about photographic signs as signifying elements, about mapping and tracking an environment, about transfer and translation from one medium to another, about the constitutive ingredients of photography: light and matter, about the role of the author in the photographic process.

Jacob of Toves Salon and I met last year in Rome. In a blink of an eye we agreed that today the photographic proces would be the only opening future perspectives in a time of artistic stalemate.
Ghostbusters (or how to stress photography) is an exhibition on photography without photography. Or perhaps and more correct, with photographic pieces in it.
Seven international artists reflect on the photographic procedure and methodology through old and new productions realized for Toves Salon – Charlottenborg Temporary Exhibition Space. Seven different statements about photographic signs as signifying elements, about mapping and tracking an environment, about transfer and translation from one medium to another, about the constitutive ingredients of photography: light and matter (phôs – light, graphè – writing), about the role of the author in the photographic process.
Together with these positions, the show Ghostbusters (or how to stress photography) also presents two “ghost” historical references of Dennis Oppenheim and Gordon Matta-Clark. Throughout the show, and thanks to the subjective perspective of photography, the viewer is invited to create his or hers subjective new times and new spaces.
Because, when liberated from its medium, photography was never more alive than today.
The show is supported by The Danish Arts Council and Københavns Kommunes Billedkunstråd
