Die 1972 geborene und in New York lebende Künstlerin Sarah Oppenheimer eröffnet ihre zweite Einzelausstellung "P-02" in der Galerie von Bartha. Oppenheimer's Werk lässt sich im Grenzgebiet der Disziplinen Skulptur und Architektur ansiedeln. Unsere alltäglichen Erfahrungen und Interaktionen mit bebautem und unbebautem Raum basieren auf einfachen und festen Schemata aus Bewegung und Stillstand, entstanden aus physischen und immateriellen Grenzen, die verinnerlicht sind und durch ihre Allgegenwärtigkeit kaum jemals an die Oberfläche unseres Bewusstseins treten.

Es gibt Bilder, die unvergesslich sind. Etwa die Szene mit Alain Delon, Romy Schneider und Jane Birkin, die in Trauerkleidung am Rand eines Bassins stehen. Es ist die Schlussszene von "La Piscine", dem Film von Jacques Deray. In der aktuellen Bildserie des Fotografen Gian Paul Lozza findet sich ein Sujet, das Derays Kammerspiel am Bassinrand, dieses glamouröse und doch tiefsinnige Moving Picture in einem einzigen, Bild gewordenen Augenblick nachhallen lässt.

The group exhibition "The End of the Line" presents nine different perspectives on our world.
