LOS ANGELES—Von Lintel Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition of new work by German artist, Christiane Feser opens from February 24 to April 21, 2018. The exhibition marks the artist’s third solo presentation with the gallery and will coincide with The Getty Center exhibition, Cut! Paper Play in Contemporary Photography, featuring Feser.
Christiane Feser utilizes photographic techniques to experiment with the paradox of photography as a representation of reality. In her ongoing series, Partition, she constructs paper into geometric forms and arranges an intricate and repetitive pattern that is illuminated for the camera to create an interplay of light and shadow. The printed photograph is then the starting point for manual interventions by the artist through cutting and folding to take the photograph from two to three dimensionality. The result is a play on reality and illusion in which the viewer is challenged to decipher depth, surface and a real shadow from a photographed shadow. These unique photo-objects can be perceived as both photographs and sculpture and ultimately a mediation on perception.
