until 28.07. | #2036ARTatBerlin | Robert Morat Galerie shows from 26th May 2018 the exhibition “The Drake Equation” with photographies by the artists Andrew Phelps and Paul Kranzler. A book launch will take place at the opening reception on 25th May.
The “National Radio Quiet Zone” was established in the 1950s in the state of Virginia. There are no radio or TV broadcasts and cell phones do not work – no radio wave is to disturb the grotesque, huge telescopes in their search for traces of extraterrestrial life. Photographers Andrew Phelps and Paul Kranzler visit a place where a bizarre mixture of people lives together: the rural population of a provincial town, the highly specialized scientists of the research facility and city dwellers fleeing electromagnetic fields, electro-sensitive civilization refugees. “I think that in the photographic work that you now hold in your hands, there are many things involved, time and science and technology and nature. For me, however, it is essentially a work on America“, writes Alard von Kittlitz in the text to the accompanying book, that has been published by Fountain Books Berlin.
Andrew Phelps, born 1967 in Mesa, Arizona, lives and works in Salzburg. Works by Andrew Phelps are found in major collections, both public and private, and have been exhibited internationally. Besides his work as a freelance photographer Phelps works as a curator at the prestigious “Fotohof“ in Salzburg.
Paul Kranzler, born in 1979 in Austria, studied at the Academy of Fine Arts Leipzig. His work is exhibited and published internationally and is found in important public collections such as the Albertina or the Photographic Collection at the Rupertinum in Vienna.
