Moist, murky mesmerism

November 21, 2011 § Leave a comment

In London’s South Bank, the Wapping Project Bankside has inaugurated a multi-artist exhibition last week, offering the art of, among others, the Slovenian photographer, Peter Koštrun. His pictures take you away into the abyss, or rather the misty countryside, and despite not seeing too much, the murky, moist landscapes mesmerize, as you try to make out what’s looming in the heavy air. It might be just me or the wine served at the private viewing, combined with my love for all things elusive, I seriously admired the images depicting the undepictable, the raw emptiness, the vast nothing. The pictures, served as a series, have calming effect calling for quiet contemplation.
Peter has been featured in the latest edition of Paris Photo and has exhibited in the Venice Biennale of Architecture and MadridFoto.








The exhibition runs until the 14th January 2012.
