This event has ended.
Following more than a decade of biological research, the Hamburg-based photographer has produced a body of black-and-white photographs focusing on a variety of living things (such as animals, plants, insects, and human beings) and natural phenomena. Lempert’s works, printed from film by the artist himself and notable for their analogue quality, not only function as detailed records bolstered by scientific knowledge, but are suffused with a great affection for all forms of life.
Lempert has established a new type of expression in Germany, a recognized pioneer in photography. A humorous composition and unique installation style ensure that his works intertwine organically, conveying the joys of freely associating with the multilayered world and connections that constitute our planet.
This exhibition consists of over 100 works, including The Skins of Alca impennis (1990-2016), an important and ongoing project documenting extinct seabirds; Belladonna (2013), which offers us hints for connecting and coexisting with ecosystems; Symmetrie and Körperbau (1995-2016), focusing on the physical forms of various living organisms; and Physiognomische Versuche (2002), which compares a variety of facial features; as well as the artist’s latest works.
