In her recent works, Sylvia Henrich has been operating largely on digital terrain. Her creative medium: computer technology that has run amok, intentionally brought out of control at specific points. Subjectivity meets auto-correct.
Stefanie Seufert’s works are about exposing aesthetic signs from the real and the virtual world. Pseudo-realities, be they inflatable or artificial, like inflatables or emojis, are evoked or depicted. The photographic support is the material for conceptually fixed protocols that lead to distortion and to the three-dimensional.
These two artists, who jointly created the concept for this exhibition, share an experimental approach to the medium. The parameters of image creation are shifted, function and dysfunction played against one another. In the process, aesthetic decisions are consciously left to the idiosyncratic qualities of the materials or to algorithms. Meaning is dissected in order to bring alternative possibilities of interpretation into play.
The exhibition is part of the European Month of Photography 2018.
