AMA LUR (*signed*)

Publisher's presentation :

"AMA LUR is the closing chapter of Galerna, an investigation project that Jon Cazenave embarked on 8 years ago.
In the course of these years, the artist has compiled a visual repertoire of the Basque people’s idiosyncrasy and aesthetics, in an attempt to unravel his homeland’s political intricacy from an anthropological perspective.

Harking back to the Late Stone Age, Cazenave focuses his inquiry on the symbolic and ritualistic world of cave paintings on both sides of the Pyrenean watershed, reinterpreting the traces left behind by the human beings who inhabited that environment.

AMA LUR thus challenges the notion of the border and reveals a territory loaded with history and magic. Delving into the Earth’s deepest recesses, Cazenave connects us with a universe that appeals to humankind’s ancestral spirit and to our balance with nature, a belief system that still guides us to this day."

Cazenave, Jon

Jon Cazenave is a Spanish Basque photographer. Presentation on the artist's website : " His approach to photography starts from an intimate anthropological perspective and develops into a language that incorporates the ancestral sign and symbol to contemporary creation. He works in the field of introspective questioning and the apprehension of knowledge through doubt and inner investigation, taking place in the universe that surrounds him. An attempt of a better understanding of the world but created through the internal study of oneself. " Jon Cazenave has published several books, including "Ama Lur" (Dalpine, 2015), and "Galerna", co-published by Dalpine and Atelier EXB in 2020 in an enlarged version,  after an initial self-published book of the same name in 2011. © Portrait taken from the artist's biography on the website of Tabakalera

Faces, stories and landscapes are all framed and fixed forever within the four corners of the print. Nevertheless, it would be wonderful if these corners could be somehow opened, thus breaking the perimeter of the photograph and letting the...
