Loevenbruck (Paris) presents a selection of photographs and film of the last two years by Gábor Ösz. In The Colours of Black and White, the representation of a studio corner touches on the basics of photography as visual representation. To achieve this, the artist has repainted a segment of reality in such a way that in a black-and-white negative it appeared as a positive image. For this purpose he chose the corner of his studio. His intention was to emulate the effects of a black-and-white photograph. In other words the tonality of the colours was very important, but he could use a great many colours to achieve the desired effect.
