PARALLEL GROWING

KARL BLOSSFELDT AND EVA-MARIA SCHÖN

ABOUT THE EXHIBITION

Karl Blossfeldt (1865–1932) is considered one of the most important photographers of New Objectivity in the 1920s and 1930s. His photographs of plants document the wealth of shapes found in nature, as barely visible merely with the naked eye. Close-ups and extreme magnification shift the shapes of plants into the sphere of abstraction and make them appear like huge sculptures and architectural forms. The works of the Berlin artist Eva-Maria Schön (* 1948) straddle the fields of painting and photography. In her series ‘Parallel Growing’ Karl Blossfeldt’s photographs of plants form a central reference point for analytical/intuitive pictorial inventions. The exhibition includes works from the series ‘Unschärfe’ (Blurring) and ‘Paralleles Wachstum’ (Parallel Growth) by Eva-Maria Schön in dialogue with a selection of large-format and multipartite collages of works by Karl Blossfeldt.
