until 22.07. | #3954ARTatBerlin | FeldbuschWiesnerRudolph (FWR) presents from 30. June 2023 „Temporary Truths“ In the project show Marta Djourina and Sara-Lena Maierhofer invited the artist Sophie Thun (Vienna) to show photographic works together.
We continue our tradition of guest curations and present the project show TEMPORARY TRUTHS in the gallery’s projectspace. Marta Djourina and Sara-Lena Maierhofer have invited the artist Sophie Thun from Vienna to show photographic works together. Although they work thematically in different fields, the three artists are united by their experimental approach to photographic material and their reinterpretation of analogue techniques. The works on display show photography as a trace, as an imprint of temporary truths, a medium for making visible something that otherwise remains hidden.
In this exhibition, MARTA DJOURINA presents examples from her ongoing series of “Filtergramme” works. Here she visualises the medium of light in a performative process and in the laboratory of the darkroom as a legible trace with an intense colour effect in the image. Accompanying this, she also shows her biographically influenced project “From: Me / To: Me II”, for which she sends 160 postcards made of photographic paper from Berlin to Sofia, thus thematising the “travel experiences” and the temporal distance between these two places.
SARA-LENA MAIERHOFER presents photograms and photographic experiments from her series of works “Untitled (Mannesmann et al.)”. (2023) and “Hands (after Adam Smith)” (2023). Here, dinosaurs become actors in financial scandals and invisible hands symbolise the myth of the regulation of a neoliberal market.
SOPHIE THUN brings two works from her ongoing series of works “After Hours” (2019), which show experiments with the intersections of photographic representation and analogue photographic technology. In doing so, her images make statements of self-empowerment as a female artist, both about her body and in relation to the handling of her own image.
with Sara-Lena Maierhofer
Sara-Lena Maierhofer (born 1982 in Freudenstadt/Black Forest; lives and works in Berlin) explores the past and present of memory and identity in her photographs, objects and video works. She combines analogue and digital photography and uses different modes and concepts. She completed a classical training as a photographer and graduated with a diploma in photography and media from the Bielefeld University of Applied Sciences in 2011. These technical foundations still play an important role in her understanding of the medium of photography today. Her work has been presented in various solo and group exhibitions and is represented in several institutional collections. She has received several awards and scholarships, including the DZ Bank Project Scholarship for Artistic Photography and the Documentary Photography Promotion Prize of the Wüstenrot Foundation.
