until 29.10. | #3593ARTatBerlin | HazeGallery presents from 2. October 2022 the exhibition “Torso Reloaded” by the artist Nadine Dinter.

HazeGallery presents Nadine Dinter’s solo exhibition Torso Reloaded opens on 1 October 2022. Dinter developed the concept in 2012 while working with New York photographer Christopher Makos, a long-time companion of Andy Warhol. For his exhibition Andy Dandy and Other Works, curated by Nadine Dinter at Galerie Hiltawsky, Makos travelled with, among others, former erotic art model and current tattoo artist Benjamin Godfre, who turned out to be an avid Warhol fan. Dinter and Godfre spontaneously decided to photographically recreate Warhol’s legendary Torso series from 1977.

Exactly ten years later, the photographer has taken up the idea once again. While Warhol’s spirit continues to be the inspiration, Dinter’s latest project shines the spotlight on the different body types of the current generation of men.

Alongside the first torso she photographed, of Benjamin Godfre, her images portray six representative men – from the professional model Benjamin Kühnemund and the photographer Traegi to a wrestler, a fitness instructor, a computer scientist, and fellow photographer Alexander Schuktuew.

While Warhol mainly photographed the front and back of male models in a tight close-up shot, Nadine Dinter’s wider framing gives them more space, adding impact to individual characteristics such as tattoos, scars, and musculature. As a result, the bodies seem close enough to touch without being overtly sexualized. These contemplative body shots were taken in an intimate hotel atmosphere using only natural lighting between January and April 2022. Each picture tells its own story, transforming the bare image into a unique photographic profile.

The exhibition Torso Reloaded also addresses the female gaze on the male body, while documenting the photographer’s exploration of the body cult in contemporary society. All of the images from 2022 were taken with a Leica SL2.
