Samuel Buckman treats since ten years every types of mediums, probes places and spaces. Again and always. Proof is this new exhibition, presented in a hotel. From the entrance, two photos untitled Solitude suggest the capacity of attention, the mobility of a glance without filter, kept open. Opened to what ? To enigma. Of places, things, persons. Who is this man, masked by a face smiling and sticking out his tongue ? Comedy of the identity, that of the artist himself, who composes this Self-Portrait in Berlin from a mask picked during the May 1st demonstration in the German capital. Still here. The mask points out a presence, one here and now. What appears here? Not much and a lot at the same time. Small nothingness which tell the happiness to be crossed by the world, which shows through the mobility of a vision and the acuteness of a language. The art as a dual opening, the glance and the sense. Still happy.
