THE ROMANCE OF PERFECTION


A Photographic Exhibition by James Ostrer


Merchant Archive 19 Kensington Park Road, W11 2EU

13 Sep – Jan 2013

Private View 12 Sep 7pm-10pm

Mon-Sat 10am-6pm;

Sun 12noon-5pm

Tel 020-7229 9006


Merchant Archive presents a series of atmospheric photographs by renowned artist James Ostrer of San Francisco Ballet principal dancer Maria Kochetkova dressed in Merchant Archive’s vintage clothing.


The exhibition celebrates her appearance with the ballet at Sadler’s Wells, EC1, 14-23 September.


James has been photographing Maria for 10 years and is inspired by her obsession with perfection and quirky passion for fashion. He uses his photographs as a canvas to symbolise and hint at hidden aspects of her character. As he says, “There is a containment of physical pain and control in ballet which is tightly interwoven with its grace and beauty. I wanted to suggest this through the images of birdcages and her being bound by vintage ribbons.”


JAMES OSTRER

James Ostrer is an artist using Neo Baroque techniques within the mediums of photography and film to examine the common thread of discomfort that underlines western culture. His first solo exhibition, “Death, Sex and Re-birth”, in 2009 explored themes such as gluttony, sexual compulsion and addiction.


In “Journey”, curated by actor Emma Thompson and activist Sam Roddick in a campaign against sex- trafficking, his work was seen alongside that of leading international artists such as Anish Kapoor and Anthony Micallef as well as Oscar-winning costume designer Sandy Powell and art director Michael Howells. This ambitious exhibition toured New York, Vienna, Madrid and The Hague from 2009-2011.


Nominated as curator’s choice for the Taylor Wessing awards at the National Portrait Gallery, James’s 2010 portrait of “Nicky Haslam in Lucian Freud’s chair” explored the intimate relationship between the ‘socialite’ and the ‘artist’. This year he has participated in the Bloom Festival Public Art Event in Verona. One of 40 international artists invited to convert political billboards into exhibition spaces, his photograph was selected to promote the event.


MARIA KOCHETKOVA

Moscow-born Maria Kochetkova joined San Francisco Ballet in 2007 as principal dancer after training at the Bolshoi ballet school and dancing with the Royal Ballet and English National Ballet. Kochetkova also won the American TV series ‘Superstars of Dance’ in January 2009 on NBC and performs internationally as a guest artist with the Bolshoi and Stanislavsky Theatres in Moscow, the Mikhailovsky Theatre in St Petersburg and the Tokyo Ballet in Japan.

Maria will be performing with San Francisco Ballet when they present three eclectic programmes at London’s Sadler’s Wells over two weeks from 14 September.

Maria Kochetkova – San Francisco Ballet – Principal

[size=3]By Aimee Tsao on September 10, 2012 in Interviews · 0 Comments[/size]
[size=3]Whenever I see Maria Kochetkova off-stage I am always surprised by how diminutive she is, so sparrow-boned and delicate that she could be a Dresden porcelain figurine.[/size]

The Romance of Perfection

— September 10, 2012 —

Text by Edwina Langley

"Ostrer shot Kochetkova in a series of poses which suggest vulnerability, playfulness, rebellion; characteristics repressed daily by the requirements of her trade."

Those characteristics didn't seem terribly repressed when MK danced in Giselle, Emeralds and Rubies.

That is a rather bizarre blanket statement of ballet. Methinks the source of the quote is none too familiar with the art. Still, love that shoot and hope to have a chance to see Kochetkova some day, either live or in a live-in-cinema situation.
