Barney Kulok at Galerie Hussenot

Barney Kulok is a great contemporary photographer who’s work comments on surveillance, and the cracks between the spaces around us… looking objectively at common places.

The lower level of the Galerie Hussenot, is a great big open white space. The prints are massive, yet you still manage to feel really small in the big void of empty space. In the context of this particular show of Barney Kulok, it worked. The gallery space echoed what we feel in Kulok’s photos.

The upper level had a video featuring 12 screens of surveillance feed on highspeed, zipping past us the narratives of streetcorners and parking lots at night. The content wasn’t persuasive but the warm glow was pretty.
