For the first time, Galerie Springer Berlin is presenting works by the artist and photographer Kathrin Linkersdorff in a solo exhibition featuring photographs from her new series “Fairies”. Linkersdorff is influenced by the Japanese philosophy of wabi-sabi, which extols the beauty of imperfection and transience.

Barbara Esch Marowski, director of the Haus am Kleistpark, described the artist a few weeks ago as follows:
“In their captivating clarity, her works are reminiscent of the plant photographs of Karl Blossfeldt, and in their aesthetics of the paintings of Edward Weston. If you entered her studio, you would not think it was a photo studio. Stacking cardboard boxes house an archive of drying plants. The beginning of her work is lengthy and painstaking treatment of even more fragile flowers. For months, they hung up, turned over, dusted and turned over again – to solidify fragilely in imagined forms. The essence of her working method is analogue. For a long time she photographed on film material with a Hasselblad and even today Linkersdorff works exclusively with deliberately used daylight. In the precisely staged moment of photography, the fading moment of transience is frozen in its full beauty. But it is only in the subsequent interplay with the elaborate process of further processing and a finely adjusted print that the image finds its perfect expression and is able to reflect the soulful moment of the shot.”
