Untitled, 2013 - Charlotte Moth

about this work

Untitled (2013) consists of analogue black and white photograms, which are dominated by their black ground and open a circular frame to reveal a photograph. The round fragment cites various works from Moth’s series Light Studies. The artist both directs and limits the viewer’s gaze by applying a method borrowed from the French architect and urban planner Paul Chemetov (°1928, Paris). He used the binocular-like cut-outs in his photographic archive material to focus and frame details of an image. In Moth’s work, however, we only catch a glimpse through the keyhole presenting a point of view that is peripheral, subjective and mysterious.

Untitled was published on the occasion of the group exhibition The Geometry of Things (with contributions by Markus Amm, Sara Barker, Charlotte Moth and Robin Watkins) at GAK - Gesellschaft für Aktuelle Kunst in Bremen in 2013.

about Charlotte Moth

Charlotte Moth is a discoverer of the particular within the familiar. Her artistic oeuvre, consisting of photographs, videos, slide projections or three-dimensional arrangements, transforms everyday objects and architecture into new forms and compositions, often cloaked in a mantle of secrecy. Among other things, she investigates the specifics of geometry by tracing it on her travels, tracking it in architecture or ordinary arrangements. Moth does not construct new geometry-inspired structures, but instead gathers geometric forms where she finds them in everyday life.

Over the past years, Charlotte Moth has had numerous solo exhibitions, including shows at ICA, London; Fondation Serralves, Porto; and IMMA, Dublin. Her work has been shown in several group exhibitions at venues such as Kunsthalle Basel; Royal Academy, London; Palais de Tokyo, Paris; and Kunsthalle Wien, Vienna. Her work is also represented in many important public collections, such as Serralves Foundation, Porto; FMAC, Paris; and FRAC Pays de la Loire, Carquefou.
