Feroz Gallery is pleased to announce its participation at sp-arte 2015 with works by August Sander, William Christenberry and Alfredo Srur.
After the acclaimed exhibition of August Sander’s “People of the 20th Century” at the 30. São Paulo Biennial in 2012, FEROZ Galerie will take part in the 11th edition of SP-Arte. Its debut at the fair will feature works by Sander, William Christenberry and Alfredo Srur.
FEROZ Galerie has confirmed its participation in the next edition of SP-Arte/2015, April 09 – 12, at the Biennial Pavilion in São Paulo. The curatorial concept that guided the selection of works aims to explore the broad spectrum of photographic production through a dialogue between three singular artistic positions.
One of the highlights of our presentation is a fine selection of 18 iconic portraits from August
Sander’s (1876-1964) masterpiece People of the 20th Century, one of the highlights of 30. São Paulo Biennial in 2012. Internationally recognized as one of the most influential photographers of the twentieth century, Sander’s portraits remain highly relevant as accurate representations of their time. We will also be showing a remarkable, very rare print of August Sander’s Bricklayer, made by the artist between 1958-60. This late artist print was one of the last works printed by the artist and probably made as a gift to his son Gunther.
Also to feature on our booth are a series of drawings and photographs by American artist William Christenberry (1936). Departing from his personal childhood memories as a means to assign new connotations to the vernacular architecture from the southern United States, Christenberry’s works are visual statements of his belief that all objects leave their individual
mark on the landscape as time passes.Among our selection of works is the last available copy of his celebrated, limited-edition portfolio Ten Southern Photographs from 1981.
We are also very pleased to show for the first time in Brazil the series Ciudades del Este by Argentinian photographer Alfredo Srur (1977). This group of 27 photographs represent the artist’s understanding of the social complexities of the La Triple Frontera, the tri-border area along the junction of Paraguay, Argentina and Brazil. One of the new talents of Latin American photography, Srur has developed since 2000 major documentarian projects in Colombia, Honduras, Ecuador, Argentina and Peru.
