Still from Wolf hunt haunted, 2013

22 November – 20 December 2013

OPENING: Thursday 21st of Nowember 2013 at 19.00h

Wolf hunt haunted is a solo presentation of young Dutch photographer and video maker Sanne Kabalt. The exhibition borrows its title from the new video installation that will have its premiere in Upominki’s basement space. Created during a residency period in Transylvania, Romania earlier this year, Wolf hunt haunted reflects on the human approach towards wild nature.

In an inscrutable forest feelings of fear and longing for an encounter with a wild animal are equally present. Through Wolf hunt haunted Kabalt transports the viewer to the Transylvanian forest and asks him to remember the words of her guide: ‘If you don’t see them, it does not mean they are not there. The wolves always sense you before you see them.’

Next to the new work presented at Upominki, the exhibition consists of pieces made by the artist in the last two years. Through photography and moving image in her practice Kabalt researches the invisible aspects of human psychology and the idea of psychological projections. When giving the invisible a visual form, Kabalt also explores her position of a maker-photographer. Therefore she is constantly playing, or even manipulating, with that what is shown, and that what is felt.

Sanne Kabalt (NL) graduated from the Utrecht School of the Arts (2011). During her studies, in 2009 she has won ‘de Fotoprijs’, a prize for photography students. In 2010 she did an internship with Anouk Kruithof in Berlin. Since her graduation she has exhibited a.o. in the Netherlands: at the Nederlands Fotomuseum, Rotterdam, and Gemeentemuseum Den Haag. And abroad, in Raum für Kunst, Paderborn (DE), Copenhagen Photowalk, Copenhagen (DN).
