until 21.12. | #1739ARTatBerlin | Galerie Gilla Lörcher shows from 15th December 2017 the 7th exhibition out of the series “One-single-artwork-show #7” by the photographer Ute Schendel.
„Landscapes appear in the Ute Schendel’s photographs as projection spaces in which natural light acts as the director. To capture this light in its sweeping impact and use it to steer our view of landscape as a continuum over times, spaces and cultures in an unpretentious, almost casual manner is the starting point and core“ (…) of Schendel´s landscape motif. „Each light sets its own accents, lets structures and surfaces appear that emphasise detail and tell of the history or cultivation of a landscape, or fade them out almost completely in shadowy darkness. Whether moonlight, sunshine, diffuse lights, murky or garish light: even the lightest gradual difference is subtly regulated and precisely balanced in all light-dark tones and grey shadings in the black and white photographs, which now and again remind one of drawings or monochrome painting.“ (Birgit Möckel) Translated by H. Allen
