Von Lintel Gallery has moved from DTLA (after a short stay) to Bergamot Station Arts Center in Santa Monica *Unit A-7. There was a reception held on May 22, 2021 to celebrate its inaugural exhibition featuring new work by German photographer Christiane Feser.
Feser approaches photography uniquely. She is not content with making a photograph that references a past situation or moment in time. She makes a three dimensional sculptural object and then photographs it, rendering it two dimensional. Feser often prints two copies of the same photograph and cannibalizes one of them to add three dimensionality back to the original flat photograph. It is a very complex process to describe, as each physical intervention is unique, whether it be cutting, folding, puncturing or adding additional material. This is photography taken way beyond pushing the shutter release button to take a picture. Feser’s constant change from material to photograph back to material, due to her meticulous interventions, confronts the viewer with a key question which is: What am I looking at? What is physical and what is a reproduction?
Christiane Feser was born in Würzburg, Germany in 1977. She studied photography at the Offenbach University of Art and Design in Germany. Selected permanent collections include the The Getty Museum, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, the Minneapolis Institute of Art, the Mönchehaus Museum and the DZ Bank Art Collection among others.
