“IF THERE’S SPACE I’LL STAY
IF THERE’S TIME I’LL SING”
14.11 • 02.12
“If there’s space I’ll stay, if there’s time I’ll sing” is a collective exhibition that brings together narratives of artists who create work that chooses Armenia as both a physical and a cultural setting. An ever-fragmented portrait of this transitory space unfolds in photographs, poetry, and an object and a sound piece.
Throughout the year, we have organized a series of workshops between 8 professional photographers and 5 young Soul Food members*, including museum visits, street photography and portrait workshops, as well as insights into the processes of printing and retouching of fine art images.
IN/ VISIBLE, a collective fundraiser and exhibition curated by Sophie Strobele, intends to contribute to a positive discourse about migration by highlighting the universal possibilities of art to render visible the human aspects of migration, the importance of cultural diversity and the limitless potential of positive integration. It asks the question: What type of visibility does society allow migrants and refugees to have, and how does this impact their representation in the public eye?
*Young Soul Food members are unaccompanied minors, young migrants and refugee youth between the ages of 14 and 22.
A girl with a bright star on her forehead, devils, bears, and St. Basil — you can see these in both folklore books and reality during the annual Ukrainian holiday called ‘Malanka’. On the evening of January 13th, after months of costume preparation, Ukrainians organized this strange carnival in the Bukovyna region in honor of the holiday.
Daniil Kotliar, a self-taught Ukrainian photographer, documented the Malanka celebration in 2021. For him, to lend visibility to disappearing Ukrainian folklore and cult holidays is a way to both learn and preserve collective practices of Ukrainian culture and memory in the present world.
Self-taught Tymur Postovyï began painting as a reflection on identity, inadequacy and protest within the realities of contemporary Ukraine.
His practice started by intervening in the streets with large-scale abstract graffitis, and evolved into painting and sculpture loaded with unique symbolism, moving between the conscious and the subconscious, madness and anticipation, urban landscapes and the natural world.
Overripe, past expiration date, is it something to drop or to take along, as fertilizer for new grounds?
LIKE A RIVER
Like a River by Daniel Jack Lyons ; an anthropological exploration of identity, transformation and coming-of-age amongst marginalised communities in the heart of the Amazon. Daniel Jack Lyons’ debut monograph continues the American artist’s long-term commitments to visualising the social and political rights of under-represented communities.
With Like a River, Lyons empowers the trans and queer communities of the region, exploring how deep indigenous traditions and modern identity politics meet in a celebratory, safe space, deep in the lush canopies and vegetation of the rainforest.
The artist Elizaveta Porodina creates images that challenge time and category. Her latest personal series, “Fuerteventura”, offers another chapter of her ongoing collaboration with make up artist and muse Cecile Paravina, and stylist Flora Huddart. It presents itself as a question, asking spectators to investigate their innermost emotions and vulnerabilities in a pressing contemplation of what we are constantly attempting to define–beauty, as both portrait and landscape.
Porodina creates a world of mythical sirens that equally allures and unsettles. Her muse Cecile Paravina and the island of Fuerteventura are the principal characters of the story, acting as portals to a dimension unknown.
The exhibit showcases photographs made across Ukraine between 2015 and 2020, resulting in a collective portrait of being young in Ukraine.
Patrick Bienert is a German photographer specialized in long-term portrait, landscape and documentary photography projects.
Patrick predominantly documents youth culture and transformation on the borders of Eastern Europe.
The exhibition « La Plaine » (« The Plain ») brings together Andrey Zouari’s most recent work. On show are paintings and an intimate archive of drawings and research, asking the question of an imaginative survival and how the future might be reinvented.
It invites the viewer to take ownership of the sketches, the « traces » of an artistic research project and to embrace this ideal plain through an intimate encounter with its various inhabitants.
Sound Design by Polocorp & Hēran Soun
Marco Ribeiro is a French-Brazilian independent fashion designer based in Paris. He founded MARCO — a brand characterized by his whimsical, bold, colorful and sculptural designs.

As a continuation of the event I-M-A-G-I-N-A-T-I-O-N-S, the Sheriff Gallery presents a solo exhibition of Korean artist Rala Choi, Winner of the Photography Price at the 37th Festival of Fashion, Photography and Accessoires in Hyéres.
The autodidact photographer, known for the use of rich, saturated, boldly contrasting colors and textures, blurs the lines between photography and painting. Through the practice of photography, Rala Choi discovered an affinity for the color Blue, the deep hue that reigns this artist’s solo exhibition.
In their effort to support next generation creatives, Sheriff Projects and Kitten celebrated the whims of the visionary, the unknown and the imagined at the Palais de Tokyo.
The exhibit showed the photographic works of Rala Choi, winner of the Grand Prix de la Photography at the 37th Hyères Festival, and Adeline Care, who received special mention of the Jury at Hyères.
Alongside the photographs, Sophie Strobele invited other emerging artists to create under the constraint of only using recyclables, featuring the work of Maya Agam, Charlotte Collet, Théo De Gueltzl, Linus Gruszweski, Lesya Godfrey, Larissa Hofmann, Alice Jacobs, Mila Taylor Young, Moffat Takadiwa and Marisca Voskamp Van Noord.

Mysticism is a crucial source of collective power and collective identity, fronting a globalised, colonised and industrialised world.

Photographer Charlotte Lapalus, who joined ADE six years ago, has been since documenting and collaborating with the people of Djimande - especially women - to create a visual journey into the sacred world of this wondrous place in Casamance.
All proceeds from this exhibition will be donated to Autour de l’Enfant.
