"Under A Blood Red Sky"
Opening: Thursday, November 30 2017 at 7.00 p.m.
Duration of the Exhibition: December 1 to February 3, 2017
We are pleased to present Under A Blood Red Sky, the 5th solo exhibition by the Munich based artist Dieter Rehm at Andreas Binder Gallery.
Still Rehm’s photographs cannot be ordered into a system or reduced to a strategy. The fleeting nature of the pictorial statement finds no foundation in conceptual asceticism, but continues in a variety of representational and pictorial forms. At least it appears this way, when we walk through Rehm’s world of images. But, perhaps, we should speak of sound worlds to remain in the realm of non-conceptualism of hearing.
As billowing and exuberant, charged and overdriven his sometimes fantastic pictures impact us, they are perceived as documentaries. Nothing here is mounted. Nothing was added or deleted subsequently on the computer. All of the pictures have a real frame of reference. They are documents of the here and now, found and captured this way with the camera. What takes place here is the asceticism of events.
The Basilika of Ottobeuren in Bavaria, Germany is the main motif of Under a Blood Red Sky. When the church was renovated in 2013, Dieter Rehm took the chance and used latters and scaffoldings to reach new perspectives on the frescoed ceilings by Johann Jakob and Franz Anton Zeiler. Later on, he mounted the photo prints on aluminum.
