until 12.06. |#3036ARTatBerlin | Galerie Dittmar presents from 30 April 2021 on the occasion of the Gallery Weekend the solo show Natur und Erzählung (> Nature and Narrative) by the artist Mona Breede.
Mona Breede occupies a significant position in contemporary photography with her choreographies, People in Public Urban Space. The term “The Silent Space”, as a later exhibition was also called, gives an indication of the character of the works. Their success became apparent early on, from the solo exhibition at the Goethe-Institut London in 1999 and their simultaneous participation in the comprehensive group exhibition “Reconstructing Space: Architecture in Recent German Photography” at the Architectural Association London (with catalogue). Numerous international exhibitions followed. 2005 Award for the New York panoramas “Men 1-n” at Art Cologne. 2009 Exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in Moscow with catalogue “The Choreographed City”. Participant and speaker at the Darmstadt Days of Photography 2010 “Jetzt. Die erzählte Zeit” and several contributions in the accompanying publication. 2013 Hanna Nagel Award winner, solo exhibition and catalogue at the Städtische Galerie Karlsruhe. 2018 represented in the catalogue for the exhibition Land_Scope at the Münchner Stadtmuseum, with photographic works from Roni Horn to Thomas Ruff on the theme of landscape in contemporary art. 2019 – 2020 for four months artist residency of the Jakob and Emma Windler Foundation, Switzerland, in Stein.
The artist’s choreographic works have always included the incorporation of nature. In the sea and beach paintings, nature is the material to outline the reciprocal relationship, the interplay between man and nature. In his presence, man changes the space, but nature refers to existential experiences and conditions that only arise from this constellation. On the formal level, this corresponds to the fact that the people seem to obey a secret direction. The artist’s urban choreographies, her system of coordinates with the confrontation and interaction of architecture and people fulfilled a similar task in terms of structure and content.
The exhibition is accompanied by a catalogue with 88 pages, 54 illustrations, specialist texts and an annotated biography. The exhibition and catalogue were supported by the Stiftung Kunstfonds.
