NON is a work in book form by visual artist Paulien Oltheten, inspired by a graffito found in the Les Olympiades area (13th arrondissement) in Paris. The book consists of a photo series and an audio transcript in which random passers-by give new meanings to the word ‘non’ (no). It playfully explores what happens when this compact statement is taken from a concrete wall to travel freely between the social and the political.
Paulien Oltheten (b. 1982) travels the globe with her camera, casually but precisely capturing photos and video footage of people who are hanging around and tagging along. “Walk on a line” is a compilation of photos and film stills that were recently shot in Japan in combination with images, short texts and sketches from her extensive archive. Through her novel handling of the medium, within the tradition of documentary street photography, Oltheten occupies a prominent position in Dutch contemporary photography and art. “Photos of Japan…” is a book about ideas, about lines, folds and wrinkles, about interstitiary spaces and traces. Whether everyday or absurd, real or stage-managed, the images are above all terribly infectious.
A box filled with many photos, notes, some sketches and a DVD of Paulien Oltheten. Published on the occasion of the Lecturis Award 2010 (Art Amsterdam). With an introduction by Hans den Hartog Jager.
The street is the working field of artist Paulien Oltheten (1982). Apparently casually she is looking for those moments of contact between people, things and the public space.
Hans den Hartog Jager: ‘Take a look at the DVD, leaf through the photographs and see: Oltheten displays a universal world that may come across as surprisingly familiar. This box also contains you.’
Taking street photography to a new level, emerging Dutch artist Pauline Oltheten works in a variety of media to explore human behavior in the public domain. This monograph, which explicates Oltheten’s unique process with essays by fellow Dutch artists Hans Aarsman and Tijs Goldschmidt, brings together nearly 100 photographs, video stills and drawings.
