WE PRESENT THE NEW CYCLE OF MARGRET HOPPE “UNDEREXPOSED MODERNISM” THAT HAS BEEN CREATED IN 2017. SHE EXPLORES FORGOTTEN MODERNIST BUILDINGS FROM THILO SCHODER AND HANS SCHAROUN IN THURINGIA AND SAXONY.

JULIEN LESCOEURS CYCLES “AÉROLITHIQUES” AND “VELVET DOOM” WERE BOTH REALIZED IN BERLIN. HE FOCUSES ON DETAILS OF THE STRUCTURES AND TEXTURES OF THE BUILDINGS.

THE TWO YOUNG BUT ALREADY ESTABLISHED PHOTOGRAPHERS FOCUS LARGELY ON STRUCTURES, MATERIALITY AND SURFACES OF ARCHITECTURE. 

MARGRET HOPPE HAS A CLASSICAL ARCHITECTURAL PHOTOGRAPHY APPROACH. WITH HER PERSONAL STYLE SHES ENCOMPASSES THE STRUCTURES AS WELL AS THE SPIRIT AND THE ATMOSPHERE OF THE PREMISES IN A VERY GRAPHICAL AND INTIMATE WAY. HER WORKS ARE PRESENT IN NUMOUROUS PRIVATE AND PUBLIC COLLECTIONS.

JULIEN LESCOEUR DRAWS HIS INSPIRATION FROM DIFFERENT MEDIA AND GENRE SUCH AS THE CUBE OF GIACOMETTI, THE FILMS OF DAVID LYNCH AND STANLEY KUBRICK, THE MUSIC OF JOY DIVISION AS WELL AS THE PAINTERS GIORGIO MORANDI AND AD REINHARDT. THE CYCLE “AÉROLITHIQUES” HAS ENTERED THE COLLECTION OF THE BIBLIOTHÈQUE NATIONALE DE FRANCE.
