Raphaël Dallaporta

The surest proof of a bomb’s existence is the moment when it no longer exists: it can only reveal itself retrospectively – with a bang – and by its absence. Until it detonates, it is really just a metal case that might be containing pretty much anything. In ‘Observations,’ the artist presents images of vessels that claim to be types of land mines. Without the text explaining each photograph, the explosive weapons non-enthusiast might only see, in the cylindrical tubes capped tight and in the metal boxes, domestic objects made slightly unfamiliar. The exhibition draws attention to the limitations of photography as a means of documentation. Upstairs, the series ‘Domestic Slavery’ shows unremarkable facades of buildings in Paris where young women, mostly from Africa and Asia, had been kept as modern slaves. / Olen Bajarias

Rebel Without A Cause

Burning bright and dying young isn't exactly the order of the day in James Dean's most famous picture, as much as it is often depicted as such. This is more a pre-cursor to 90210 than it is a premonition about James Dean's early death, at the achingly young age of 24. Like, James Dean's character, Jim, doesn't even die in the movie. Plato does. Apart from a couple of minor scuffles with authority, Jim is a voice of reason, attempting to reign in Plato's increasingly erratic behaviour. Even when involved in a knife-fight with Plato's cruel tormentors from school, Jim fights only to the point of having the upper hand and getting away, never being truly malicious in his behaviour. Sure, Jim isn't even the Rebel Without A Cause of the title, if it's anyone, it is Plato. Rant over. / Kate Coleman
