Susa Templin

In the exhibition “Sites and Constructions“, Galerie Dorothée Nilsson presents works by the internationally active artist Susa Templin for the first time.
These are photographic-sculptural spatial studies from the series “Interiors and Other Rooms”, “Zimmer, Türen, Berlin” and “Sites and Constructions” that were created between 2015 and 2018. The new, “in situ” work was created for the exhibition in the gallery.

“Susa Templin explores the question of how spaces and memories permeate each other. Her photographic investigations lead to extensive installations. In the alternation of material and scale, models of paper and cardboard are created, which are photographed and further processed from different perspectives. They are independent sculptures and at the same time provide the motifs for further photographs.

The artist deals with images of memories that reappear in new compositions in spatial abstraction. Image by image and layer by layer, often by multiple exposures, the photographically captured space is deconstructed, distorted in perspective and subjectively reassembled. Statics and perspective are suspended. Interior views become facades, exterior views become enigmatic interiors. Straight angles become obtuse angles and vice versa. The views distort optically and in reality in the folds of the folded picture walls.

For Susa Templin, spaces are nested storage media and she traces this universal, timeless memory of space photographically and architecturally. This creates spatially accessible, photographic spaces of dreamlike lightness and fragility.”

Luminita Sabau, 2018

Susa Templin studied at the Städelschule in Frankfurt am Main and at the Hochschule der Künste in Berlin. Her photographic and three-dimensional, walk-in installations have already been shown in the Kunsthalle Mannheim, Kunsthalle Nürnberg, DZ Bank Kunst-Sammlung in Frankfurt a. M., Folkwang Museum Essen, Berlinische Galerie, Museum für Photographie Braunschweig and many others.
