Group Exhibition

»Difference & Repetition«

Silke Helmerdig, Stefanos Pavlakis, Jens Schünemann, Sabine Wild

Curated by Silke Helmerdig & Sabine Wild

Also open during November / Auch im November geöffnet

A series of images shot in quick succession, the recurrent engagement with a single image, or the camera’s automatic allocation of identical file names: in all of these activities repetition is a crucial factor.

Repetition is inherent to photography. A recurrent act – releasing the shutter – triggers either a chemical or an electronic response that culminates in a reproducible image. This in turn features in, and is informed by, infinitely variable contexts.

But repetition also brings difference into play: two unrelated images are automatically given identical file names; small changes can be noted even in images shot in the exact same situation but in quick succession; and an image repeatedly examined in photographic terms appears different each and every time.

The exhibition presents four photographic approaches to difference and repetition. With works by Silke Helmerdig, Stefanos Pavlakis, Jens Schünemann and Sabine Wild.
