Duderstadt: dialogs, paintings, pictures


An exhibition of works by Neo Rauch and photographs by Roger Ballen, André Gelpke, Ralph Gibson, Duane Michals, Vera Lehndorff/Holger Trülzsch, Arthur Tress. Painting invents, photography discovers. It is often in those terms that the two media are weighted and juxtaposed. Such a stance belies a belief in the authenticity of photography as opposed to the willful mingling of illusion and reality in painting. Among the most important international artists of his generation, Neo Rauch has perfectly mastered this game. The native Leipziger, born 1960, understands painting as “the continuation of a dream by other means” and thus gives us an essential clue to his work. Rauch’s neo-surrealism thrives on constructed dream worlds. We recognize displaced scraps of reality, but they have been combined anew and encrypted. In doing so Rauch seems to suggest particular interpretations yet simultaneously sabotages them with artistic ambiguity.
