The process of Jonathan LLense is shaped by daily walks through the city. Guided by a first intuition, he plays with the environment combining already-there elements in order to implement a new and playful perception.
LLense identifies visual systems, default forms, arrangements and DIY, where the power of evocation that they contain is due to the recurrence of compositions and gestures and which he subsequently makes interact with his surroundings.
His pictures are mostly presenting people and objects in odd configurations and situations, staged and constructed in a direct dialogue to his daily experience. Bodies, trivial and scrap, natural or industrial elements, suddenly become the subject of a game of formal associations, semantic shifts, two dimensions or three dimensions collages, which are photographed and shown for themselves in the exhibition space. Within these archaic gestures, these vernacular detournements.
LLense would like to restore all the theatricality of everyday space altered by its users. By offering an amused look about things around us, about these every life scenes and reveals the potential of pleasurable experimentation they reserve.

Espace Jörg Brockmann
The Espace Jörg Brockmann has been presenting contemporary photography in Geneva for the past twelve years.

The mission of the Espace Jörg Brockmann is to present the work of emerging or confirmed photographers, national or international, at the rate of 6 exhibitions per year. The guiding line of the proposed work is essentially oriented around documentary work in the broadest sense. The Espace Jörg Brockmann is interested in pushing the boundaries of perception and representation of the medium.
