SOMMER

SOMMER

– 16 Sep 2022
The year is in full swing, people are drawn to the meadows and beaches, the leaves dress the trees in rich green. And even if we can't see them in black-and-white photographs, the bright colors of summer can still be glimpsed. In any case, Johanna Breede, with her skilful sense of image selection and composition, once again knows how to make colors shine that are not there at first glance. In the monochrome photographs of Jens Knigge or Marek Pozniak, for example, we intuitively be…

WINTER

WINTER

– 11 Mar 2022
Winter, those are memories. The crunching of deep firn under the boots; wondrous ice flowers on the window panes; the sweet sightings of early snowdrops. But above all, winter is the season when the world becomes quieter. Thomas Mann once caressed a snow-covered mountain landscape with his words as "padded soundlessness". It is not only the world that becomes quieter, but also the colours. Grey light, white fields, black branches. The paint of winter is as monochrome as it is rich in c…

UNTITLED

UNTITLED

– 13 Nov 2021
When the gallery doors open again after more than a year of Corona restrictions and lockdowns, the question arises: what have we missed the most? What have we suffered the most from? Under the most modest of all titles, Johanna Breede's UNTITLED invites us to a concert of wishes that holds a whole grab bag of answers. Here "untitled" does not mean without a concept, but rather elevates the greatest possible freedom, for which we have longed for so long. It is the freedom of choic…

MAGIC OF SILENCE / MAGIE DER STILLE

MAGIC OF SILENCE / MAGIE DER STILLE

– 29 May 2019
It is the year 1969: In the French Church of St. Moritz, Herbert von Karajan, then Chief Conductor of the Berliner Philharmoniker, conducts Arthur Honegger's Symphony no. 2. The exact circumstances of the concert are not known. The only thing that remains is the silence. Robert Lebeck has sculpted them on a minimalist composition of light and shadow. But each before and after is cut off: only the genius and the great silence; the moment between two sentences, between two bars or two notes. …

FAVORITE IMAGES / LIEBLINGSBILDER

FAVORITE IMAGES / LIEBLINGSBILDER

– 30 Jun 2017
Love loves small things. Love doesn't seek big pathos or emphasis. Love hides in the profane; in the shiny shoes in which one has journeyed or in the perfect fold of a beautiful dress. The really big things often lurk in the smallest of details. "I believe," the American poet Walt Whitman once wrote, "a leaf of grass is no less than the journey-work of the stars." It is a poetry of dignity and nuance. This is a credo about the interplay of all things and the reverberati…

Northern Light

Northern Light

– 4 Feb 2017
Humility in the face of nature and its inimitable sublimity: that is the feeling that overcomes Jens Knigge during his wintertime travels along the Arctic Circle. He has recorded his impressions of snow-covered landscapes and the mysterious aurora borealis in mostly small-format platinum-palladium prints. In the end, the contact sheets of the negatives of his analog photographs illustrate the inadequacy of established formal idioms and modes of expression. For it seems to be virtually imposs…

THE WINDOW - DAS FENSTER

THE WINDOW - DAS FENSTER

– 13 Jun 2015
We alone are the insiders of our interior worlds. Within ourselves we feel safe and yet often isolated and sealed off. At the same time, hope is almost always contained therein: evident itself in windows, in the gates of the eyes. Each window is a link, a step between the interior and the exterior. The window functions just as with the lens of a camera - it is the point between the camera obscura and the outside. The point where light breaks through and illuminates another world. A…

Platinum Prints

Platinum Prints

– 8 Nov 2014
The Finest Shades of Gray When a contemporary photographer is interested in such an archaic technique as the platinum-palladium print in our age of digital imagery, he must have a good reason: for Jens Knigge it is likely the rich gray tonal scale which can only be achieved in this process. As Irving Penn before him, Knigge has perfected the entire production process as few others have, starting with releasing the shutter of his large-format camera, to the work he later…

Le Thoronet - La Tourette

Le Thoronet - La Tourette

Synergie der Künste

– 13 Oct 2012
Romanesque masonry, rounded arches and cushion capitals, juxtaposed with concrete cuboids, pillars and walls – at first sight, Jens Knigge’s photography thematises two seemingly completely different examples of architecture. The Cistercian abbey at Le Thoronet was built in Provence between 1160 and 1190, according to the specifications of Bernard de Clairvaux. The unknown master builder used the local limestone to merge the staggered, multi-levelled construction into the surrounding …
