neu ist alles was ich habe

  • Artists:
    Johannes PostRaphael Brunk
  • Date:
    16.2. to 16.3.2018
  • Venue:

Artists Johannes Post and Raphael Brunk are both on the verge of photography. Despite different aesthetic and conceptual approaches, there is a common intersection in the attempt to create images that cannot be found in reality. Her work triggers a confusion among the viewer, in which both the content of the picture and the production method remain equally questionable. With subtle irritations and unusual angles of view, both of them transport the medium of photography into a space that seems to be shaped by an artificial and surreal imagery.

 

At the same time, the interventions always remain quiet and/or adapted to the environment in such a way that the incompatibility with the real world almost threatens to escape. Especially in the – at times humorously used – oeconomy of the second glance there is a common denominator of these technically quite different craftsmen. However, the unagitated, almost reserved humour does not obscure the fact that her works are pushed by a constant search for the unseen, which makes her discover the new images.

Raphael Brunk: Blätter, 2017
