Kustera Projects is pleased to present:

The Naive side of Time, an exhibition by French artist, Gaston Bertin

October 15th - November 13th, 2016
Opening reception on Saturday, October 15th, from 6-8pm

Gaston Bertin’s photographs are not photos in the traditional sense, transforming reality into pictures, rather his work transform pictures, into reality. The actual objects in his photos are hiding their overwhelming symbolic and emotional presence behind tones of an almost decoration. Bertin’s candy- colored, dreamy, soft focused abstractions are the result of photographing handmade paper collages in such a way as to obliterate their surface and materiality. As Vince Aletti: wrote in The Village Voice There’s something at once retro and futuristic about them, like they fell off the wall of some 60’s sci- sitcom set.

For his exhibition at Kustera Projects, the viewer will literally enter Bertin’s work by passing through a giant photo transparency adhered directly to the gallery’s glass storefront. On the walls will be ten colorful photo assembleges which attempt to connect to one another but the matching of the images always seem slightly off ...failed attempts.

Finally, there is one piece made up of 23 photographs that creates a spiral that could recall a line made with a can of spray paint on a wall. This is the only piece that the photographer has made without a camera, because he realises that he defines himself as being a photographer that intends to break the rules of traditional photography and ends up being an hostage of these rules.
