In her detail-like photographs, Clement conjures up, in almost surreal fashion, a new image of the body that stands at the same time for the ambiguous vision of a “new human being”. With the aid of her photographs taken with her smartphone camera, not only the illustrative function of the image medium is queried, but also the reality of the technically modified human being.
Louisa Clement studied at Karlsruhe State Academy of Fine Arts and Düsseldorf Art Academy. She was a master-student of renowned photographer Andreas Gursky, whose large-format images often catalogue large-scale industrial processes, or artificial environments. This is the artist’s first large-scale solo museum exhibition. Her work has previously been shown in group exhibitions at the Wallraf-Richartz-Museum, Cologne and Braunschweig Museum of Photography. She is represented by Galerie Wentrup, Berlin.
A catalogue will be published by Hatje Cantz including texts by Jana Baumann, Andreas Beitin, Daniel Birnbaum, and Stefan Gronert (160 pages, 24 Euro).
The exhibition is being devised by the Sprengel Museum Hannover in cooperation with the Ludwigforum Aachen.
You are cordially invited to the opening on Tuesday, 29 January 2019, 6.30 p.m.
