until 27.10. | #2134ARTatBerlin | galerie beate brinkmann presents from 29th September 2018 the exhibition Glass House with architectural photographs of the photographer Michael Carapetian. The gallery is taking part in the European Month of Photography (EMOP, 29.09.-31.10.2018).
The “maison de verre” (1931) is a dwelling house in Paris, built by Pierre Chareau. Its façade, a nontransparent wall of glass, transformed it into an icon of modern architecture. Michael Carapetians photographies from 1965 show a »canonical and mysterious house from close-ups of the construction details, to part shots of the different rooms with their particular furnishings, to the changing Gestalt of the house according to different times of the day and night.” (Kenneth Frampton). These photographies are precious documents, because they show from a architectural-theoretical perspective Chareaus specific technical-artistic achievements. Some years ago the house has been sold and the furniture has been scattered to the winds.
Michael Carapetian lives in Venice and London. Beside his work as architect and professor he was a architect-photographer. Today he works as a designer of light. 1965 he spent several days in the “maison de verre” in Paris.
