Eva Bartussek

Eva Bartussek - Horse House, seen here

I'm looking forward to seeing the photography exhibition, Horse House by Eva Bartussek at the Glynn Vivian Gallery in Swansea, it opens on Friday 9 October.
Here is the gallery information:
Eva Bartussek is an emerging Swansea based photographer who seeks to expand notions of documentary portraiture through her work. Horse House is the documentation of an extraordinary, local, domestic situation: a mansion that for some time was simultaneously a home and stable. By photographing this 'world' extensively, Bartussek sought to foreground its dreamlike, even surreal aspects. In this piece, she creates a portrait of a person without photographing them directly and in doing so the portrait becomes that of a home, its contents, a house, its history, a situation, a space and so on.
