While the gallery has moved to Berlin in summer, we still operate the showroom in Hamburg, open Friday and Saturday 12 – 6pm. So on my way there today.

The current show there is Michael Lange’s “Fluss“ (“River“).The project is a consistent sequel to his former “Wald” series, examining nature and aiming to find stillness and order. “River” focuses on the Rhine and the adjacent meadows of the Upper Rhine in the south of Germany. Between 2012 and 2014 Lange spent three years, working in the late fall and winter seasons, mostly shooting in the early monring hours at the break of dawn.

Lange says about his work: “To lose myself in situations and images, to indulge in the longing for stillness is a major element of my artistic work. My works are intimate encounters.“
