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.
