Pinel photo group / Photo project Spreefeld

On Friday, December 15th, at 6 p.m., the gallery Silber & Salz will hold the opening for the exhibition of the Pinel photo group. The artists’ works will be presented from the 11th to the 18th of December and from the 3rd to 17th of January.

The first official exhibition of the Pinel photo group shows artistic analog black-and-white photographs from the last one and a half years of work. Among the exhibited works are pictures from the portrait series with residents of the housing cooperative “Spreefeld” and the associated Teepee Land Community. Two of those pictures have already been billboarded on the exterior walls of the building of the housing cooperative “Spreefeld”. A series of very personal perspectives and scenes from the photographers’ everyday lives will be displayed as well.

The Pinel photo group has been working under the guidance of Sibylle Baier and Nick Grossmann in the buildings of the cooperative housing project “Spreefeld” for one and a half years. “At this location in the center of Berlin, we combine the social psychiatric work of the nonprofit association Pinel with artistic analog black-and white photography,” explains Nick Grossmann. “In the portrait series, the individual features served as a basic concept for the production, which was realized with a 4 x 5”Inch large format camera,” states Grossmann. “Inclusion finds its expression in pictures with aesthetic beauty and space-filling individuality, without distinction between the specific qualities in front of and behind the camera. The mutual respect, the approach to non-conformal worlds of life is reflected in the artistic creativity and the very personal expression of all protagonists,” outlines Sibylle Baier.

The focus of the work with mentally ill adults is on the mediation of analog photographic knowledge, the development of their own means of expression as well as social interaction. During numerous walks through the city, scenes of everyday life but also independent thematic series have been created. These reflect the personal perception, the arbitrary view and autarchic perspectives of the photographers.

The photo project Spreefeld is offered by the nonprofit association Pinel. As part of the project, clients are imparted an independent artistic opportunity to express themselves through the practice of analog photography.
