Exhibition Programm 2019

Poetry of Plants – Photographs
Karl Blossfeldt and Jim Dine

An exhibition by Die Photographische Sammlung/SK Stiftung Kultur

February 22 – Juli 21, 2019 (Room 1)

With the photographs by Karl Blossfeldt (1865-1932) and Jim Dine (b. 1935) two important groups of works in the collection of Die Photographische Sammlung/SK Stiftung Kultur are being presented. They are linked by an artistic approach to the world of plants. This is not so much based on botanical aspects as against the background of the diverse world of forms. Graphic and sculptural issues play a central role in the works of both artists. In addition, traces of atmospheric reminiscences can be found in the motifs of Jim Dine’s large-format heliogravures.

Roselyne Titaud – „Géographies des limites humaines“. Photographs

An exhibition by Die Photographische Sammlung/SK Stiftung Kultur, in cooperation with the aritst

February 22 – Juli 21, 2019 (Room 2, 3)

The artist Roselyne Titaud (b. 1977) is presenting a selection from various series. Her world of motifs encompasses interiors, still lifes and landscapes, which she captures in balanced, matter-of-fact colour photographs. The majority of her still lifes were taken in private apartments in Berlin. Diverse decorative items made for example of porcelain, glass or wood relate to moments of personal memories and illustrate ideas of taste and spatial references. In many cases elements from nature such as artificial flowers, plant ornaments or animal reproductions play a role – for the artist they provide an imaginary bridge which leads to the area of real landscape and connects internal and external space.
