New-York : Erwin Olaf : Berlin


Archives of March 14, 2013

Last week we covered the Erwin Olaf exhibition in London. Now the same series, Berlin, is on view at the Hasted Kraeutler gallery in New York. The photographs of Erwin Olaf are intriguing for their preciousness, their sense of detail and their strangeness. Olaf has long worked in his studio with a whole team of designers, but for his new series, Berlin, he used the city as a backdrop, taking inspiration from the cinema; Berlin feels like a tribute to Visconti’s The Damned. His photographs are disturbing. They may remind some viewers of the sadistic children from Michael Haneke’s White Ribbon. But others will surely see something different. The images are full of visual references. Sophie Hedtmann ‘Berlin’ by Erwin Olaf From March 14th to April 27th, 2013 Hasted Kraeutler 537 W 24th St New York, NY 10011 USA +1 212-627-0006
