Mütter, Luca Santese’s first solo show in Germany is hosted and curated by Jergon, an art hub located in Berlin’s cultural heart of Kreuzberg. The space is dedicated to the promotion of experimental photography and a center for independent research.
The exhibition itinerary unfolds in three spaces, each representing the constituent stages of Santese’s artist practice, which has been questioning the mimesis of the photographic image for 15 years by means of an ongoing comparison and association with archetypes and themes belonging to the history of classic and contemporary art.
The artwork on display is drawn from the following series: Found Photos in Detroit, Festa and Errors, leading up to a metamorphic dialogue between abstraction and figuration, the historical and the archetypical, the realist and the visionary.
The exhibition is curated by Nicola Patruno.
Music performance by Hannes Buder, Cello and Voice.
