Published in conjunction with the exhibition tilted, Pavel Odvody: Korper, Raum und Licht--Fotografien/Matthias Will: Kraftfeld Balance--Stahl Skulpturen. Publisher's description: Pavel Odvody’s black and white photographs fuse sensibility, memory, and fantasy. Odvody experiments with different, even “incorrect,” exposures times to create the illusion of rhythm and dance in his still pictures. A figure frozen in the photograph becomes a dynamic gestural expression. Odovody utilizes light in a balance between figuration and abstraction, creating unmistakably personal images. Though the leitmotif of Odvody’s photography is the human body—its physicality and movement—his images also serve as an exploration of the human psyche. His photographs have a unique ability to get under the observer’s skin: Moments of nakedness, staged in magical double exposures, wraithlike patterns, or silhouettes of light, reveal human beings in their most vulnerable manifestations.
