tempo lineare: SPACE AND TIMELESSNESS

September 29th, 2007 — 10:09am

480w tempo lineare catalogue coverJay Mark Johnson’s remarkable large-scale photographs are about space and time, and paradoxically, in the case of the images in this exhibition, about space and timelessness.  He takes subjects that have engaged the imagination of artists for centuries—the bustle of the piazza, the routines of the countryside—and transforms them . . .

tempo lineare: Raum und Zeitlosigkeit

September 29th, 2007 — 10:07am

480w tempo lineare catalogue coverJay Mark Johnsons bemerkenswerte großformatige Fotografien handeln von Raum und Zeit und im Fall der Bilder in dieser Ausstellung paradoxerweise von Raum und Zeitlosigkeit. Er greift Motive auf, die die Vorstellungskraft von Künstlern seit Jahrhunderten beschäftigt haben – das Treiben auf Plätzen, der Alltag des Landlebens . . .

tempo lineare: The Perceptions of Spacetime: The Cetona Mercato

September 29th, 2007 — 10:06am

480w tempo lineare catalogue coverThis exhibit of Jay Mark Johnson shows very appealing, beautiful and familiar images of Cetona, but viewed from a very different perspective. Having had the pleasure of staying a week in Cetona this past summer and being very familiar after spending many pleasant hours in Garibaldi Piazza, I particularly relate to the images of the “Mercato” with people arriving and departing, shopping and socializing, as the weekly Saturday morning event unfolds.

tempo lineare: La percezione dello spazio e del tempo: Il mercato di Cetona

September 29th, 2007 — 10:05am

480w tempo lineare catalogue coverLa mostra di Jay Mark Johnson offre le più belle e più familiari immagini di Cetona viste ora attraverso una prospettiva diversa. Anche io ho avuto il piacere di spendere una settimana a Cetona questa estate, ed essendomi familiarizzato con le immagini del paese dopo aver passato diverse piacevolissime ore in piazza Garibaldi, mi sono restate impresse nella mente proprio quelle particolari del mercato, dove la gente va e viene, fa la spesa e si ferma a parlare ogni sabato mattina.

tempo lineare: Wahrnehmungen von Raum und Zeit: Der Cetona Mercato

September 29th, 2007 — 10:04am

480w tempo lineare catalogue coverDiese Ausstellung von Jay Mark Johnson zeigt sehr ansprechende, schöne und vertraute Bilder von Cetona, aber aus einer anderen Perspektive. Da ich letzten Sommer das Vergnügen hatte, eine Woche in Cetona zu verbringen und nach vielen angenehmen Stunden auf der Garibaldi Piazza sehr vertraut damit bin, kann ich mich besonders mit den Bildern des „Mercato“ identifizieren, die das ständige Kommen und Gehen von Menschen abbilden, die einkaufen oder Freunde treffen, wie es wöchentlich Samstag morgens der Fall ist.

tempo lineare: Introduction to the Catalogue

September 29th, 2007 — 10:03am

480w tempo lineare catalogue coverThe task of presenting a photographic exhibition of Jay Mark Johnson to the people of Cetona is not an easy one.  It is not the sort of normal “institutional” assignment taken on simply to fulfill the responsibilities of one’s job or because one has been “authorized” to translate into words the distinct experience of observing a collection of photographic images.  Instead, the task involves a challenge to the mind and to its mechanisms of perception, a challenge in which the viewer is confronted with a series of images in which the “real world becomes unreal”.

tempo lineare: Introduzione al Catalogo

September 29th, 2007 — 10:02am

480w tempo lineare catalogue coverPresentare al pubblico cetonese una mostra fotografica di Jay Mark Johnson non è facile. Perché non è solo un compito “istituzionale” di esprimere il proprio compiacimento per l’iniziativa o perché non si è un “addetto ai lavori” in grado di tradurre in parole quel che si scorge osservando le immagini fotografiche. È qualcosa che investe l’animo, il pensiero, la riflessione, l’idea di colui che si pone davanti ad un’immagine che rappresenta un “mondo reale diventato irreale” sul quale compare la figura umana riconoscibilissima ma a volte evanescente tra la sua vera natura ed essenza.

tempo lineare: Einführung in den Katalog

September 29th, 2007 — 10:01am

480w tempo lineare catalogue coverEs ist keine einfache Aufgabe, den Bürgern von Cetona die Fotoausstellung von Jay Mark Johnson zu präsentieren. Es handelt sich hier nicht um den normalen „institutionellen“ Auftrag, den man einfach übernimmt um seinem Job nachzukommen oder weil man „ermächtigt“ wurde, die spezielle Erfahrung, eine Sammlung von fotografischen Bildern zu betrachten, in Worte zu kleiden. Stattdessen beinhaltet diese Aufgabe eine Herausforderung für den Intellekt und seine Wahrnehmungsmechanismen, eine Herausforderung, in der der Betrachter mit einer Reihe von Bildern konfrontiert wird, in denen die „wirkliche Welt unwirklich wird.“
