  Douglas Mandry: Unseen Sights, Untitled III, 2017
C-Print on Mat paper, 150 x 120 cm, Edition 5 & 1 AP 
Bildhalle presents the second solo exhibition by the Swiss artist Douglas Mandry. He will show exclusively works from the past two years, amongst them many from his latest series "Monuments". Concurrently with the exhibition "EQUIVALENCES", a book of the same title will be published.
"Seductively beautiful in the use of color, the diversity of form and the choice of materials while, simultaneously, being conceptually sophisticated in terms of subject-matters and photographic processes: the starting points for the artist Douglas Mandry (b. 1989 in Geneva), who has moved to Zurich in 2013, are real world phenomena and experimenting with various photographic techniques. Oscillating between historical analogue and contemporary digital imaging methods, the artist creates his very own pictorial worlds. Observations in nature and the examination of current issues merge in his work with his reflections regarding his chosen medium photography - documentation with abstraction, reasoning with sensuality. Conceptual rigor and experimental liberties are well balanced in Douglas Mandry's work, and the autonomous nature of photographic processes bears serendipitous
results: the unforeseen meets intention and idea. This way, complex issues receive poetic allure. Each work retains a productive riddle that encourages us to question our perception of the reality of the world and the reality of images". (Nadine Olonetzky )

Mandry's practice is a direct response to the digitalization of photography and the technological accelerations that came along with it. Always shooting his initial images in analogue, all of Mandry's interventions in the image are done by hand, through the application of different historic photographic processes or by physically cutting and pasting.
"Douglas Mandry does not so much as add reality to his landscape photographs by coloring them, but rather deconstructs it by emphasizing the process of creation. Mandry colors his landscapes and adds new layers to the picture plane on the basis of his memory, like a painter who deliberately turns his sketch of a place into a painting in his studio". (Mirjam Kooiman, Foam Museum Amsterdam)
