“Snow and Rose & other tales” is Marianna Rothen’s first monograph and showcases her work over the past few years. “In the lonely fortress of her domestic home, life is unbearable.” With those dramatic words, the viewer is invited into the world created by Marianna Rothen, a fictional account of women who left the world of men behind and moved to a remote and peaceful place to live amongst themselves. Rothen’s photographs are staged like homages to the films of Antonioni, Bergman or Godard; they seem like film stills and intrigue the viewer to search for and identify the references. “Snow and Rose & other tales” is laid out like a movie, a slow transition from despair of a domestic life to freedom and independence. Marianna Rothen’s photographs are both unsettling and sexy, humorous and serene, but above all, they are incredibly beautiful portraits of women.

London-based artist Aleksandra Mir in the past month started a collaborative experiment investigating the process of drawing. Participants were invited to contribute to a giant picture of the London skyline, rendered entirely with Sharpies. The process of creating the work was part of the exhibition itself, with Aleksandra and her team engaged in drawing everything by hand during the first days of the show. But for those of you that couldn’t be there, here’s a time-lapse film of the process, providing context and insight to this giant piece. Aleksandra Mir at Drawing Room will run until July 19th.
