In his series Blank, he continues his journey but this time by awakening our fears and imaginations. When traveling the world, in Tokyo, Seoul, Amsterdam, London, Dusseldorf, Gefeller, as a surveyor of his time, gives us a reflection of what the world could be in the event of a future catastrophe. The photographs are far beyond historic and ordinary optical occurences.
The works from the space uses the artificial lighting from our towns and cities and turns them into an ephemeral wonderland. Excessively overexposed photographs of building façades, motorway intersections, container terminals and refineries reveal vast faded areas. The photographs create tension between urban reality and its potential chaos leaving the possibility to envision a strange and overthrown world
German photographer Andreas Gefeller makes visual misdirection and deception the very basis of his aesthetic. Photographing modern cityscapes and man made spaces through bird's- and worm’s-eye perspectives and utilizing composite construction, his images destabilize the notion of photographic reality.
Sous Les Etoiles Gallery is pleased to announce “Blank,“ German photographer Andreas Gefeller’s premiere exhibition with the gallery. An opening reception with the artist in attendance will be held on Thursday, September 7, 6–8pm, and an artist talk is scheduled for Monday, September 11 at 7pm.
