until 04.05. | #2403ARTatBerlin | Robert Morat Galerie shows from 23rd March 2019 the exhibition Hinterland by the photographer Hans-Christian Schink.
“Hinterland means the sparsely populated areas off the big cities, in this series especially the remote regions of Brandenburg and Mecklenburg-Vorpommern,” explains Hans-Christian Schink. “On the other hand, the title Hinterland also refers to the imaginary landscapes that emerge from my memory. Landscapes that I know from my childhood.” And he goes on: “So this series is not about portraying concrete places. My pictures are more the result of a search without a destination.” In his project, Hans-Christian Schink tries to keep a balance of showing the brittle beauty of this form of landscape whilst transporting an atmosphere of melancholy, which stems from the endangerment of this landscape caused by the permanent exploitation of its resources.
Hans-Christian Schink, born in Erfurt in 1961, studied at the Academy of Visual Arts in Leipzig. He is considered one of the most important representatives of contemporary photography in Germany. His works, mostly landscape studies in the field of tension between nature and civilization, are exhibited internationally and can be found in important public and private collections. With “Hinterland” the gallery presents Schink’s latest body of work.
We cordially invite you to the opening of the exhibition “Hans-Christian Schink | Hinterland” on Friday, March 22, at 7 pm.
Vernissage: Friday, 22. March 2019, 7:00 p.m.
