Making a wonderful exhibition (Un certain regard) which is both attractive to watch and thought provoking, I mean.

They succeeded in making a show that isn’t just interesting for the eye, it even suggests it would be interesting for the fingers, the tongue or the nose (although one might be happy that the smell factor is not actually active).

The show is leaning towards an exercise in voyeurism without being pornographic.

In fact the whole exhibition is an essay on the sensual gaze and as such it deserves an almost museum-like attention.

The gallery has brought together eleven artists from Europe, Asia, America and Africa, – which is remarkable in itself – varying from the great and famous Nestor of them all, Swiss photographer Walter Pfeiffer and the South African candid camera photographer Dean Hutton, to the British multimedia artist Julie Verhoeven and the young Chinese artist Taocheng Wang, who lives in the Netherlands.

The show would be worth reviewing more extensively, but i’m afraid other priorities make me leave that to other authors.

Enjoy the pictures, but it’s far better to visit the show yourself.
