Photography solo exhibition

Ulica kneza Koclja 9, Maribor
21 June – 1 July 2011


“I am preoccupied with objectness and photography, hence, I create images of various objects, dry, meaningless artefacts of the everyday world. At the same time, I look for these very same artefacts in a self-referential manner in the world of photography. For me, this is an exercise in patience in a field without meaning, which still makes possible intense creativity, engagement and enthusiasm. Even though there are concrete social issues, which art should respond to, I ensconce oneself in the politics of the medium, the politics of my own finger on the trigger, my look in the viewfinder, in the strategy of developing and enlarging photos, and in the politics of selection and exhibition. I possess no extra knowledge of the world, I am afraid; with my activity, I am yet to create it. If there is a purpose to the exhibition, this must be it.”
- Peter Rauch

The exhibition features a selection of photographs from the open series Objects. The first part of the series was presented for the first time at the Vžigalica Gallery in July 2010.
