until 06.08. | #3518ARTatBerlin | Contemporary Fine Arts currently shows the exhibition Auguri by the artist Juergen Teller.

Auguri, translated as ‘Congratulations’, is a fitting title for Juergen Teller’s solo exhibition of photographic works that have been shot within the last two years as a euphoric celebration of life after the pandemic with his wife and muse, Dovile Drizyte.

The exhibition opens with the series We are Building our Future Together (2021), which features Juergen and Dovile clad in high visibility workwear, striking various poses at construction sites in Venice and Naples. As viewers, we are invited to witness their performative and suggestive interventions with the surrounding paraphernalia – the road signs, pipes, drills, saws and machinery, producing a comic narrative that is symbolic of their fruitful and trusting relationship.

Juergen Teller, “Auguri No. 191”, 2021, 50,8 x 40,64 cm 

This set the joyful, irreverent tone for their wedding in Naples, an occasion they ensured was an unforgettable, multi-day experience for their guests, in a city they love for its gritty beauty and the warmth of its people.

Auguri (2021) is Teller and Drizyte’s uninhibited visual diary of their wedding adventure and a celebration of their life together.

Juergen Teller, born in Erlangen in 1964, studied at the Bayerische Staatslehranstalt für Photographie in Munich. His work has been published in influential magazines such as Vogue, System, i-D, POP and Arena Homme+, and has been the subject of solo exhibitions including those at the Institute of Contemporary Arts in London, the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain in Paris and Martin-Gropius-Bau in Berlin. Teller won the prestigious Citibank Photography Prize in 2003, and from 2014 to 2019 held a professorship at the Akademie der Bildenden Künste Nürnberg. His books with Steidl include Louis XV (2005), Marc Jacobs Advertising, 1998–2009 (2009), Siegerflieger (2015), The Master IV (2019), Handbags (2019), Leben und Tod (2020) and William Eggleston 414 (2020).
Dovile Drizyte, born in Kaunas in 1982, is Juergen Teller’s creative partner. Drizyte studied political science and diplomacy at Vytautas Magnus University in Kaunas, before relocating to New York where she worked with luxury and fashion brands for 15 years. Since 2018 she has been based in London, collaborating closely with Teller on all his editorial, art, and publishing projects.
