the return

Stefanie Schneider: Stranger than Paradise LUMAS Bielefeld, Dortmund, Hannover und Mannheim zeigen bis Ende Oktober 2014 Werke der Ku?nstlerin Stefanie Schneider. Die deutsche Fotografin arbeitet mit bereits abgelaufenen Polaroid Filmen, mit denen sie erzählerische Bildgeschichten in faszinierender Ästhetik erschafft.1996 erstand Schneider in Los Angeles am Sunset Boulevard drei Kisten mit je 60 alten Polaroid-Streifen. Seither bestimmt die surreal anmutende Farbigkeit der abgelaufenen Polaroid-Filme ihr Werk. Die Ausstellung Stranger than Paradise zeigt einzigartige Arbeiten, die den Zufall zum Programm erheben und zwischen Fiktion und Wirklichkeit changieren.

Saatchi Gallery London

With the ubiquity of smartphones and rise in photo-sharing services, the world has recently exploded with photographers from all backgrounds who are embracing new technology to tell their stories in innovative ways, not least of all via motion photography.

In recognition of the exciting potential of this new technology, Saatchi Art, the Saatchi Gallery and Google+ will award the inaugural Motion Photography Prize, inviting photographers all over the world to celebrate this new creative art form.

Six finalists (one per category) have been be chosen:

Stefanie Schneider (Landscape), Kostas Agiannitis, (Lifestyle), Micaël Reynaud (Action), Matthew Clarke (Night), Emma Critchley (People), Christina Rinaldi  (Urban)


Stefanie Schneider : Trainride

Like flickering sequences of old road movies Schneider’s images seem to evaporate before conclusions can be made – their ephemeral reality manifesting in subtle gestures and mysterious motives. Schneider’s images refuse to succumb to reality, they keep alive the confusions of dream, desire, fact, and fiction.

Schneider’s Motion Photograph is a part of a larger project, “Strange Love 2004”. The artist says about the piece: “Love, lost and unrequited leaves its mark in our lives as a senseless pain that has no place in the present. The ex lover experiences the residues of love as an amputee experiences the sensation of a ghost limb. It is the tangible experience of “absence” that has inspired this piece. Due to the steady change of perspectives – realities, illusions, dreams on different time lines, the question of  truth is impossible to answer. Reality is profoundly subjective and the search for personal happiness is a steady (manic) interpretation of one’s own truth.”

Group Exhibition De Re Gallery Debut

De Re Gallery, Los Angeles
Private Preview May 15, Vernissage May 16

An Artistic Mélange Between Europe, New York and L.A. Contemporary,
De Re Gallery Spotlights Masters of Present and Past

Seeking to offer a vibrant new destination in the local community where contemporary art from Europe, New York and Los Angeles intertwine, and modern prodigies mingle with established masters, De Re Gallery will hold a VIP grand opening party on Thursday, May 15, followed by its public opening on Friday.

De Re Gallery is the brainchild of two visionaries. Marine Tanguy, a Cambridge art history graduate, most recently served as co-­director of Lazarides and director of The Outsiders Gallery in London. It was here where she first met Steph Sebbag, art enthusiast / collector and founder, president and chief creative officer of bpg, an award-­winning L.A. advertising agency serving the entertainment industry. Subsequently together at Art Basel Miami, a mutual idea was born for a new gallery in L.A., one that took its name and inspiration from Tanguy’s childhood home on the French island of Ile de Ré.

Scouring the world for art treasures, Tanguy and Sebbag will launch De Re Gallery with a focus on a dozen-­plus of the most promising contemporary artists, which include New York star Mike Sagato, whose meticulous oil paintings depict humanity in playful dramas, Florence-­trained, Louvre-­commissioned sculptor Victor Gingembre, who uses Michelangelo marble from Carrara, Billy Childish painting protégée Gretchen Andrew, Florence de Ponthaud, who personally trained in Matisse’s and Rodin’s studios, renowned German-­born photographer Stefanie Schneider, and Sophie Dickens, an award-­winning English sculptor and great-­great-­granddaughter of author Charles Dickens, among others. The works of these 21st century prodigies are displayed alongside those by Salvador Dali, Andy Warhol, Tom Wesselmann, Fernando Botero, Banksy and others. As director Marine Tanguy explains, the mission of the gallery is to embrace “a sense of artistic continuity,” creating a living dialogue between these masters of the present and the past.

“We have the grand privilege to witness the creation of the art world of tomorrow in Los Angeles,” offered Marianne Le Morvan, director of the Berthe Weill archive, art history academic and Modigliani expert. “Marine Tanguy, whom artistic intuition already gave her the opportunity to direct an influential gallery in the European contemporary art market, brings her whole personality to this new gallery, partnering with the creative eye of art enthusiast and collector Steph Sebbag, who could be the next Charles Saatchi.”

Stefanie Schneider & Ana Bath

Pop-up Art Gallery, Berlin


From Friday 14th February Pop-up Art Gallery Berlin is proud to present the work of Stefanie Schneider.

Taking the American West as her inspiration, Stefanie Schneider’s analog images evoke ideas of masquerade and play, the intense gazes of Schneider’s female characters undermine their playful edge suggesting an unnerving or tragic quality beneath the surface of these glossy women. Collectively the works evoke love, pain, loneliness, alienation and re-discovery and can be seen to suggest a social commentary on America; pointing to the cracks beneath the surface of the glitz and glamour of the ’American Dream’.

Using expired Polaroid film which is then enlarged by hand in her own laboratory, Schneider’s images both emphasis the sun drenched light of California and embody the cinematographic quality of the films of Quentin Tarantino and Oliver Stone and are reminiscent of forgotten memories, dreams and chance encounters. The blemishes of the expired Polaroid film, further add to Schneider's intent to represent an imperfect narrative.

Her work will be presented alongside one of Pop-up Gallery's most recognized and exciting artists Ana Bathe.

Born in Serbia during wartime Ana fled to Canada as a refugee at the age of ten. Raised in Toronto she always felt misplaced leading her to question her own identity. Now home in Berlin, the city and its melting pot of alternative cultures and lifestyles supports her direction of self discovery and fuels her passion to challenge ideas of conventional beauty and gender in her work.

This exhibition offers interesting look into self portrait photography by two outstanding Berlin based female artists.

This Event will run until the finissage on February 19th.
