Emeis Deubel : the life of New Yorkers and Japan's art of packaging - 'Babel Tales' and 'The Art of Wrapping Garbage', exhibitions in Copenhagen and Stockholm

Peter FUNCH explored New York’s street for four years. He identified patterns in everyday coincidences in his current hometown and questioned the concepts of fiction and reality. His focus lies on interhuman relationships and the interaction of a metropolis; in his ‘Babel Tales Addendum’ photo series, he depicts the detailed uniqueness of the individual and the community spirit of our urban surroundings.

The title of the solo exhibition is on the one hand linked to the tale of the Tower of Babel, and on the other hand pays homage to author Paul Auster and his New Yorker stories of ‘City of Glass’ and ‘Auggie Wren’s Christmas Story’.

The V1 Gallery presents 41 panorama photographs by the photo artist until 29 May. A publication accompanies the exhibition – it is a limited edition – which features the complete Babel Tales series.

Susanne WALSTRÖM returned from her Japanese travels with her bags fully packed: with fascination, admiration and a variety of impressions and images. She couldn’t get over how the Japanese carefully package a variety of objects – including their own garbage – which led onto her project ‘The art of wrapping garbage’.

The colourful results were celebrated at a private view in Stockholm on 20 May. GoSee presents a selection of images and a clip, which is certainly worth watching, on GoSee FILM!
