EXHIBITION UPDATE! Berlin corona regulations currently allow for us to host an opening weekend for ANDREA GRÜTZNER „ERBGERICHT - NEUE RÄUME“ tomorrow, Friday and Saturday, March 25, 26 and 27. We are open daily 12-6pm, visits by appointment! Appointments can be arranged on short notice, on site. We can allow 3 visitors at a time, please wear a mask!

ERBGERICHT - NEUE RÄUME
For over a hundred years “Erbgericht” is a county inn, a guesthouse in rural Saxony, in a village called Polenz. Andrea Grützner, born 1984 in Pirna, spent her early childhood nearby and tells of a big old house “full of nooks and crannies, whose corners and objects have the memories of generations attached to them. It’s a collage of material built over generations!”.

The images of her series “Erbgericht”, taken in one analog shot, are studies of these corners and objects. Through the use of color flash and the creation of strong shadow lines, the interiors look alienated and transformed. “Shadows are traces and marks that have a direct relation to the object, but through the projection, it can appear twice as big or transformed and changed. Shadows take on their own lives” and thus, says Andrea Grützner, they work a lot like memories.

Five years ago, in spring 2016, the gallery presented the first works from the highly acclaimed series. During the last three years, while Andrea Grützner worked on other projects, completed a Bauhaus residency, accepted several teaching positions and exhibited intensively internationally, several new pictures were taken at “Erbgericht” and the gallery is happy to now be able to show these “new rooms”.

We are very much looking forward to seeing you at the gallery! For more info please go to www.robertmorat.de

WEEKLY WINDOW #6

Today: Andrea Grützner, „Showcase“, 2019, from the series „Hive“, 100 x 133 cm, Pigmemt Print, ed. of 5

Andrea Grützner’s artistic work deals with the emotional and visual perception of spaces. Using mostly photographic means, she finds and creates images as well as objects that oscillate between photography, painting and collage. Andrea Grützner (*1984, Pirna, Germany) lives and works in Berlin.

„Hive is based on a photographic work I shot at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology in 2017, mostly at „New Academic Street“, a large area of the University undergoing major reconstruction and transformation. The reconstructed contemporary education buildings are designed to provide spaces that are felt as common spaces for knowledge sharing. They are meeting and learning environments for students. For me, these maze-like spaces work as a metaphor for orientation and alienation in our modern society. Eclectic interiors draw links to retro computer games that require the player to advance from level to level. Other spaces within the buildings feel alive with the potential to enclose those within them, and some look like three-dimensional comic-strips or a fun house. Through subtle and more obvious manipulations of my photographs – like bold color, double exposure and collage – I highlight my responses to these physical spaces, which allows me to also reveal the playfulness, the absurdity, the uncanny and the artificial that exists within these spaces. I like to question how architecture can have a performative power, and to what extent it can determine human behavior and change our way of living.“ (Andrea Grützner)

SAVE THE DATE: An exhibition of new works from Andrea‘s series „Erbgericht“ opens on March 25! We are very much looking forward to seeing you back at the gallery! For more info please go to www.robertmorat.de

Today: Bill Jacobson „figure, ground #234“, 2016, Pigment Print, 75 x 90 cm, edition of 5

Bill Jacobon’s series „figure, ground“ is linked conceptually to Jacobson’s earlier project „Place (Series)“ that the gallery presented during GALLERY WEEKEND 2018. After exploring images in which rectangular forms were placed in a variety of spaces, this series depicts the artist’s interest in the undulating lines inherent in the human body and it’s relationship to the land. The figures in these photographs look away from the camera towards a natural landscape that becomes increasingly out of focus as it recedes. Working with an analog 8 x 10 camera, they are depicted in extraordinarily sharp detail, especially in contrast with the softness of the background. Through the shift in focus and by looking at people’s backs, Jacobson references and contradicts the traditions of both landscape and portrait photography. The photographs suggest that we all face the unknown, as well as our inherent vulnerability in traversing the world around us. These themes are consistent with those in most all of Jacobson’s output over the past twenty-five years.

Bill Jacobson’s work is found in private and public collections internationally, including the Guggenheim Museum; the Whitney Museum; the Metropolitan Museum of Art; Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; the Victoria and Albert Museum; among many others. Jacobson has received fellowships from the John Simon Guggenheim Foundation (2012), the Aaron Siskind Foundation (1995), and the New York Foundation for the Arts (1994). Since 2007 he has taught in the Bard/ICP MFA program based in New York. Born 1955 in Norwich, Connecticut, Jacobson now lives and works in New York City.

Mårten Lange, „100%“, Pigment Print, 90 x 120cm, edition of 5.

Mårten Lange, born 1984 in Gothenburg, Sweden, lives and works in Berlin. He studied photography at the University of Gothenburg and the University for the Creative Arts in Farnham in the UK. He received international attention early on for the publications of his series “Another Language” (Mack Books, London, 2012), „Citizen” (Études Books, Paris, 2015) and “Chicxulub” (self-published, 2016). This image is taken from Lange’s highly acclaimed series „The Mechanism“, again published at Mack Books, London, in 2017.

„The Mechanism” is a project about urban life, technology and surveillance taken in London, New York and Tokyo. „This picture was photographed in Manhattan’s Lower East Side in October 2015, when I was an artist in residence at ISCP in Brooklyn. I loved the mathematical and typographic boldness of the graffiti. I made a big xerox print of it and put it up on my studio wall. The number 100 is a universal symbol for something complete or something perfect and I like how rough the graffiti was done and how the paint bleeds down the side of the building“, explains Lange. „Generally speaking, „The Mechanism“ is not about a place, but about a time. About the way people live today in urban environments. It is a fictional story about the future, created by looking at contemporary life.”

„The Mechanism“ marked an important step in Lange‘s career with museum presentations at Hamburger Kunsthalle (installation view above) and Moderna Museet in Stockholm, both in 2018.

Jessica Backhaus „Unfolding“, 2015, C-Print, 85 x 127 cm, edition of 5.

Jessica Backhaus, born in 1970, is considered one of the most distinguished voices in contemporary photography out of Germany today. Her work is published and exhibited internationally and can be found in important collections such as the collection of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, the Margulies Collection in Miami or the Deutsche Börse Collection in Frankfurt. Backhaus studied in Paris in the 1990ies and started her career in New York, where she lived between 1995 and 2010. She has since returned to her native Germany and today lives and works in Berlin.

This image, titled „Unfolding“, showing torn wrapping paper, a gift in the process of being unpacked, is taken from her highly acclaimed series „Six Degrees of Freedom“ from 2016. Here, as in her previous documentary work, notably “Jesus and the Cherries” (2005), “What Still Remains” (2008) or “Once, still and forever” (2011), Jessica Backhaus develops a strong sense for the melancholy of the everyday and the emotional quality of color and light. But the project also marks an important turning point in Backhaus‘ work, introducing abstractions and staged studio still lives. It is also is by far her most personal work: “It is about my roots and the memory that is attached to them. The series assembles visual associations, reflections that are like fragments of my past, yet at the same time stand for the very universal experience of searching for the key to one’s personal identity“, says Jessica Backhaus. The book to the series “Six Degrees of Freedom” was published at Kehrer Verlag, Heidelberg

Christopher Anderson „untitled“, Chromogenic Print, 100 x 135cm, edition of 3, from the series „Son“, 2013.

Christopher Anderson, born in 1970 in Canada, today lives and works in Paris. He first received international attention for his documentary work from conflict zones all over the world and is a member of Magnum since 2005. The birth of his son in 2008 became the starting point for a very personal, intimate project. This image, showing his wife and son with the baby looking back at his father (and the viewer) through a shower screen, became an iconic image and the cover for the book, „Son“, published at Kehrer Verlag in 2013.

At the time of the publication of the book, Anderson said: „For many years I have traveled extensively to document the emotional experiences of others. Then shortly after the birth of our son, after the intense joy of new life, my father was diagnosed with lung cancer. It is fair to say that I found myself reflecting on obvious themes of life and death, my role as a son and a father, my own life passing. An experience that is at the same time the most unique and the most universal. These photographs are an organic response to that experience. It feels like everything I ever photographed only prepared me for this project. I think this series of photographs is my most important work, they are a record of love and a reflection on the seasonal nature of life.”

Last year, in 2020, Christopher Anderson followed this series up with a second very personal project, published with Stanley/Baker, devoted to his daughter and titled „Pia“.

SAVE THE DATE: Max Pinckers „Margins of Excess“ kicks off with a soft opening and book signing between 12-6pm on Friday, September 25! We are very much looking forward to seeing you at the gallery!

Max Pinckers’ “Margins of Excess” examines the difficult differentiation between reality and fiction in the modern media age. The notion of how personal imagination conflicts with generally accepted beliefs is expressed through the narratives of six individuals. Every one of them momentarily received nationwide attention in the US press because of their attempts to realize a dream or passion but were presented as frauds or deceivers by the media’s apparent incapacity to deal with idiosyncratic versions of reality. The project asks to what extent terms such as “truth”, “half-truth”, “lie”, “fiction” and “entertainment” are connected in an era of “post-truth”. The photographs are accompanied by press articles, archive material and personal interviews.

Max Pinckers (* 1988) lives and works in Brussels, Belgium. His work is exhibited internationally and won multiple awards, e.g. the Edward Steichen Award (2015) and the Leica Oscar Barnack Award (2018).

The show is the gallery‘s contribution to the program of this year’s European Month of Photography in Berlin, running from October 1 to 30.
