Priming and Framing

JOIN US FOR THE OPENING ON FRIDAY NOVEMBER 11 AT 5 7 PM!

With the exhibition Priming and Framing Specta presents a body of new works by Peter Holst Henckel. In the juxtaposition of photography and a variety of materials which give a physical experience of structures, surfaces and preparation, Peter Holst Henckel’s works are both textural and inviting and at the same time charged with underlying meanings.

Priming and Framing is an ambiguous title: on one hand, the terms are common when talking about the artist's work - the artist prepares the canvas (priming) and frames (framing). But on the other hand, Priming and Framing are also terms which are used when the media and politicians try to control what we are talking about - defined as priming - and how we talk about it in the public sphere - framing.
There is therefore an exchange between the personal and the surrounding reality. The Priming and Framing, the artist does when the artwork is prepared and performed, is represented in the works with a variety of materials that provide an immediate and physical experience of structures, surfaces and preparation: stretchers, wood, paint, aluminum. One can, so to speak, detect the artist's actions.
On the surfaces photographic images are printed. The motives are focusing on a media-political landscape. Not so much a definite political statement, but rather a being in and a questioning of the (political) reality, we find ourselves in.

One example is Positive Priming (2016), where pieces of wood, each partially dipped in paint, are put together, becomong one whole surfce, thus appearing to be in an initial phase of the making of the artwork. On this primed surface photographs are printd, somtimes in layers. With the photographic images prnted on the partially painted wood, Peter Hols Henckel achieves an interction between the textures of the material and the photographic statement.
