Photography and Abstraction
The exhibition is dedicated to the issue of abstraction in the field of contemporary photography. Riemer’s unique approach to photography creates atmospheres, which combine the past and the future. Whether the works were recently taken by him, or he used images from photo archives and added his own take on them, they all have a sense of timelessness, allowing for both the future and the past to enter.
This exhibition is part of the 4th edition of the festival "Normandie impressionniste" and will take place in 3 locations:
Frac Normandie Rouen,
Micro Onde - art center,
and Centre Photographique d’Île-de-France
A book - bilingual - will be then published

Si le nez de Cléopâtre..
"Si le nez de Cléopâtre..." investigates the process of constant rewriting and ?correction? of history and the forces at play that take place during the process. The project centers on taking the figure of Cleopatra as a metaphor for this practice and looks at how, as a historical figure, her image has been defaced and ?refaced? in Western collective imaginary.
Cité des Arts, Paris
Biennial of digital art curated by Gilles Alvarez et Dominique Moulon
"Fifteen Pairs of Mouths"s an on-going project started in 2016 that investigates the new role of the hands as a vehicle for communication in the post-Internet age. For the last four years, I have been collecting more than 60 gestures of people texting on their phones. In the installation, fifteen of these pairs of dismembered hands casted in white plaster stand on steel mounts in various positions mimicking this new way of communicating. The phone itself remains absent; leaving a negative space in between the fingers.
