Fit to the concept of the room gallery, Kim works with spaces. You tried the space in a different way and Levels to capture. Used the concepts and ideas from mathematics or physics among others around the room more than to understand through experience or tried to find a more spatial dimension inter alia through texts and light and to expand the existing space without direct modifications: I think that light is a very important element to define a space. In previous work, I tried often to integrate other areas by means of light in existing rooms or to create illusions. More mathematical or physical space concepts interested me lately.

As examples, the Sprengel Museum Hannover has gathered many milestones of random art. In the presentation, the exhibition makers leave nothing to chance.

Jackson Pollock drilled holes in the paint bucket and ran across huge, lying at the bottom of image formats. ‘Jack the Dripper’ a perpetual joyful inspiration was one with the emergence of his work, the Act of painting. Museum of the merit to have drawn a huge range of media and artistic personalities on a coherent thread to the Sprengel. Art exhibition, a discreet suspension system with single gallery rail, beautiful Gallery frame and the right focus placed picture lighting together with the well researched and presented artistic networks contribute to the success of the exhibition.

Andre Wagner – Visions Of Time

Published by:

WHITECONCEPTS shows Andre Wagner is a romantic in a solo exhibition of Andre Wagner. “It does travel in areas that promise him the possibility of extreme authentic experiences he observed people in their rituals and reveals her inner light.” Dr. Wibke (b. 1980, lives and works in Berlin) has created a remarkable work by Bonin, culture journalist Andre Wagner in the last 10 years. The young photographer picks up real existing situations. His painterly poetic images are created through long-term exposure. Artistically he deals with the contradictions of human existence: the deep attachment to nature in contrast to the culture of industrial progress.

This is evident in his early drawings of fire, he writes as a self-portrait in the nocturnal landscape, as well as in its landscape portraits that reflect the human and the nature as a manifestation. One of the outstanding images of the series Romance of element”is the recording of the dried-out for me River in New Zealand. The photographer has it filled the bed of the missing River with a spiral beam stretching miles and so figuratively replaces one element with another. It has cost him much effort and discipline, to dance the riverbed with the huge torch down to a fire performance for the land, the air, the room again and execute the missing water. It took nearly a full night, run the km for this recording, until the next morning dawned and the last drops of light oil was consumed.” Mindaugas Kavaliauskas, curator, Kaunas Photo Festival, an artist, and not just a photographer, can the ability have, to see objects behind the lens, to absorb the atmosphere and then to color them with the feelings expressed through them. Artistic photography is Andre Wagner’s medium and the beauty is his motive in time.

When energy is dynamic and not static, their movement is incessantly. The movement of time is not only vertically, but goes in all directions and all Dimensions. His images are timeless and invade externally by the inertia of the silence, but create turbulent emotions inside. We can try with his photos, to visualize time.” “Shri Sarvabhavana, Indian mystic on the occasion of his participation in the fifty-fifth Biennale di Venezia is at the same time his first monograph published by distance (ed.
