The exhibition “Different days” by a photographer Julia Hetta, will be held at Gun Gallery in Stockholm.
In the early 2000s, Julia Hetta was studying at the Gerrit Rietveldt Academie in Amsterdam. That’s probably not too far, geographically or mentally, from the Rijksmuseum and classic painting of the Netherlands. And the Goeden Eeuw, of course, the golden age of Dutch painting, the 17th century: Rembrandt, Vermeer, Hals, van Goyen, Kalf. Possibly. Julia Hetta may already have learned to live with that comparison, or should one say historic parallel, or reference – she has certainly been there and dug around and found knowledge and inspiration.
It’s really stranger that we should be so astonished, impressed and surprised about this. What could be less surprising than the fact that a photographer and artist should have drawn knowledge and inspiration from
some of the very best, and practically most famous, the most obvious and for many quite wonderful: the Dutch Masters.
But it’s very original, and very different, and it turns into something unusually beautiful.
