JB text Transparency 2020

In Juliana Borinski’s camera-less photographic work, layers of photosensitive paper become transparent to each other in the traces left by their superimposition on photographic paper. The light that acted as catalyst of the chemical process materializes in the work of art. The layers of time captured in the making and the resultant work are exposed in a play of presence and absence – a typology of imageless photography. Born in Rio de Janeiro in 1979, Juliana Borinski lives in Paris. Her art has been exhibited internationally since 2006, at venues including the Fondation d’entreprise Ricard in Paris, the Württembergischer Kunstverein Stuttgart, and Drawing Room in London.
