TOBIAS ZIELONY | Artist's talk (in German) | Marta Herford Museum, Herford, Germany - 27 January, h. 6pm

Tobias Zielony has become known for his sensitive portraits of people, whom he accompanies with a lot of closeness, also in conversation and in their respective environments. Often it is about subcultures and questions of identity. Research and interviews are an elementary part of his artistic practice. These contexts and traces flow into his multimedia installations and thus unwind a broad network of socio-political correlations. Equally important for him, however, are fundamental questions about image production as such and about how image and world relate to each other.

The collection is conceived as a dynamic structure of constellations, examined for continuities and ruptures, relevance and redundancy.

The Rotary Club Milano Brera intends to create an opportunity to bring the public, including the uninitiated, closer to this complexity and to the values of which contemporary art is the bearer, stimulating the understanding of languages that are as new and original as they are often hermetic, in the awareness that knowledge of contemporary art represents a privileged key to interpreting our present.

THOMAS RUFF | Dark Matter - Group show | Kunsthalle Bielefeld, Germany - November 5, 2022 - March 5, 2023

THOMAS RUFF | Dark Matter - Group show | Kunsthalle Bielefeld, Germany - November 5, 2022 - March 5, 2023

Thomas Ruff (1958) and James Welling (1951) are among the best-known photographic artists of the present day. In their works, they explore the conditions of visual perception, also in relation to our use of the photographic apparatus, and the conditioning of our view of the world through photographic images. The exhibition “Dark Matter. Thomas Ruff, James Welling” focuses on works that wrest new possibilities from the photographic image and expand our powers of imagination. We perceive our environment subjectively, we see and feel it against the background of what we can grasp and understand in traditional images and words. Around eighty per cent of the matter in the universe consists of a substance that we do not know: Dark matter. Is it similar with the photographic image? Does it hide more than it shows?
