The gallery is pleased to present the first solo exhibition in Canada and second in North America of work by the famed German photographer, Claudia Fährenkemper (b. Castrop-Rauxel, Germany, 1959). For more than thirty years, Fährenkemper has used photography to explore the strange beauty of man-made or natural objects by isolating them in some way from their environment. She studied under Bernd and Hilla Becher at the prestigious Kunstakademie Düsseldorf from 1989 until 1995 and has since produced series in landscape, machinery, photomicroscopy, and most recently, formal portraits of 15th to 19th Century suits of armour. This exhibition offers a survey of her practice that displays her talents in many genres. Illustrating her central thesis of using photography to transform reality and produce photographic images that visualize phenomena to enable comparative vision, Fährenkemper invites the observer to compare the information conveyed by her photographs with their own visible or remembered reality.
