"Kaballes: Noemi Otamendi"
2001-05-19 until 2001-06-30
Focal Point Gallery
Southend-On-Sea, , UK United Kingdom

Since childhood Noemi Ottamendi has had an insistent impulse to produce images of horses. It is a subject matter that has occured repeatedly in her work as artist and which she returns to in this exhibition. The work in 'Kaballes' is concerned directly with the compelling nature of fascination itself.

Otamendi's photographic work is the creative opportunity to think of ourselves outside our personal identity. The horse is explored and displayed as the 'opposite', the non-human subject, appearinglike an imagined mythical beast.

In these large-scale photographs, Ottamendi focuses on details; eyes, nostrils, the tops of limbs; framing them in extreme close up. Body parts are abstracted and the subject is created in an exercise of re-assembling the fragments. The effect is disorientating. the works are displyed in groups of twos and threes, creating a sense of fractured movement. She causes us to consider the strangeness of this animal and our relationship to it.

Noemi Ottamendi was born in La Coruna, Spain. She studied Fine Arts at the University of Pantevedra and after gaining a 'Fundacio Barne de la Maza- British Council' Scholarship she completed an MA in Photographic Studies at the University of Westminster. She has exhibited widley in Spain and in London.
