Remember when we could touch


Marcel Gähler

Verletzlicher Augenblick




Born in London in 1968, Paula Rae Gibson has been photographing since her early 20’s. Her work is exhibited around the world and published in books and magazines. She is the winner of the Julia Margaret Cameron Award/Women seen by Women in 2019.
I have always craved intimacy and been attracted to the passionate, the most alive people. I wish to put these emotions in the world, and relate in the most vulnerable, authentic way. I’m reflecting on this project I started before lockdown, and looking at the images differently now. Where would we be without each other? Without each other’s touch, each other’s recognition of who we really are. How long will we be living in memory?

Marcel Gähler, born in Zurich in 1969, lives and works in Winterthur. His work has been shown in numerous exhibitions in Europe, China and the USA and featured in a number of widely recognized publications. It is represented in important public and private collections. Gähler’s pencil drawings oscillate between masterful realism and dissolution in the blur, in the play of light and shadow, in movement. With fine lines, the artist transforms snapshots of his family into memory images of remote intensity. In them the magic and the preciousness of the fleeting moment are expressed as well as the knowledge of its transience and the longing to hold onto it.

Als ausgebildeter wissenschaftlicher Zeichner fertigte Marcel Reuschmann (geb. 1941) zahlreiche Aquarelle und Zeichnungen an, die ausdrücklich dem Zweck der Dokumentation dienten und die wichtige Grundlagen für Studien und Forschungen bildeten. Was allerdings kaum jemand weiss, Reuschmann zeichnete auch in seiner Freizeit und er tut es noch. Losgelöst von naturalistischer Sachlichkeit bezeugen seine bisher unveröffentlichten Arbeiten einen künstlerischen Ansatz, der im Mittelpunkt der Betrachtung steht.
