Ingar Krauss
»Hütten Hecken Haufen«
(Huts Hedges Heaps)

On the occasion of the presentation of Ingar Krauss‘s new book “Huts Hedges Heaps”, the artist shares the stage with Inka Schube (Sprengel Museum Hannover) in a public conversation. The survey exhibition at Galerie Pankow takes an overview of Krauss’s practice, exploring the nature theme that has emerged and recurred from his early portraits to the recent work series, which led to this new publication.

The book “Huts Hedges Heaps” (the second publication by Ingar Krauss at Hartmann Books after „39 Bilder“ of 2016) is about human order in nature. The laconic photographs of small, rural gardens which Krauss shot between 2010 and 2017 particularly in Brandenburg, show concentrated traces of human efforts to create order, which take on graphic and sculptural dimensions in the pictures’ structure. In the Black Forest, he produced pictures of wood piles, whose man-made forms are even more abstract, because they organically fit into the structures of their natural surroundings, recalling the work of Land artists. The Huts, Hedges and Heaps are connected to the American New Topographic movement of the 1970s insofar as they “fulfill everything that people wanted in a picture in those days, overturning an observation into a ‘higher’ order of some kind; the monumentalization of the everyday, not by resorting to monumentalizing genres, but by the captivating composition of the image,” as Ulf Erdmann Ziegler writes.

The exhibition “Lichtungen” (Clearances) at Galerie Pankow is on view until July 28, 2019.
Galerie Pankow, Breite Straße 8, 13187 Berlin.
Tue – Fri 12 – 8 pm, Sat/Sun 2 – 8 pm.
