„Norway – Architecture, Infrastructure, Landscape“ – Conference and Exhibition in Milan, Italy

Mittwoch, 22. Juni 2016

Polimi Milano

Over summer, SpazioFMG, IrisFMG gallery and showroom in Milan is hosting “Norway, Architecture, Infrastructure. Landscape. Photographs by Ken Schluchtmann”, concept by Ken Schluchtmann, curated by Luca Molinari and Alessandro Benetti in collaboration with Christiane Bürklein. A journey to Norway as a theme in keeping with the season and a unique opportunity to get to know the majestic landscapes of Norway that multi award-winning German photographer Ken Schluchtmann has immortalised, as well as the ideas of the architects behind these infrastructures and the constructions that aim to promote tourism as a means of underpinning and supporting the local economy in Norway.

Every photographic project is accompanied by a folder containing technical drawings and detailed descriptions by the architects to provide all the information needed about the project, including its actual location. The exhibition set-up underscores the idea of the journey: wooden crates with the map of Norway are used as tables for the folders and reference the itinerant nature of the National Tourist Routes.

Once more it is the image – and therefore the photographer as mediator between architect and audience – becoming the messenger of the design idea. Ken Schluchtmann shares his visual narrative of a country begging to be explored: Norway.

„Inside Out“ – Palais de Tokyo Paris, Triennale der Photographie Hamburg

Montag, 02. November 2015

090602_15_31_36

Glasgow-born, Berlin-based designer Leigh Sachwitz’s Studio for Design flora&faunavisions GmbH has created a mesmerizing interactive experience called “Insideout” for the „Photography Playground“ at the Triennale der Photographie in Hamburg. It is a 360° multimedia installation that explores the house as a sanctuary and as a safe haven from nature’s many forces.

Inside the greenhouse-like illuminated installation, the viewer experiences nature’s many forces by hearing the rain and watching the dark clouds gather above, and when the protective walls disappear, the participant will feel exposed and vulnerable in the eye of the storm. But then, once the storm has passed, there is a feeling of purity and freshness, and an overall sense of calm envelopes the participant.

The visual installation is accompanied by sound design by the Berlin-based award-winning composer, musician and producer Andi Toma, one of the founding members of the electronic music collaboration Mouse on Mars.

On 28 October the “Perspective Playground“ has opened at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris. The art installations of this new exhibition is curated and produced by flora&faunavisions for the lead agency VITAMIN E – and the client OLYMPUS Europe. Installations from internationally renowned artists, included INSIDEOUT, transport you into a fascinating and playful world of art and science that spans several floors of this renowned Paris museum – one of the top 5 in the world for contemporary art, again photographed by Ken Schluchtmann who underlines the visual impact of the artworks.

PATH is a work created by young Icelandic artist Elín Hansdóttir.

Hansdóttir built a narrow tunnel that zig-zags through the gallery space. Light only comes through vertical and horizontal slits that appear as cracks in the construction. The Path changes rapidly upon sharp edges and disarranges the visitors.

It was shown in the Berlin Gallery Maribel Lopez and the Islandic National Gallery and was part of the exhibition „RETHINK – Contemporary Art & Climate Change“ in Copenhagen.
