The archival pigment print inserted in Tom Hegen’s special edition Salt Works shows one of the many sea salt production sites the photographer portrayed from the air and captured in their unique beauty as an abstract field. Tom Hegen photographs salt mines around the world, bringing them together in a study of colors and compositions reminiscent of abstract paintings. N°TSSIII02, San Francisco Bay, California, United States is one of those visual spectacles of beautiful geometries and stunning colors and also the cover subject of this impressively beautiful collection.

Tom Hegen (1991, Augsburg) is one of the most high-profile aerial photographers of our time. In his works, the Augsburg-based photographer documents the traces that man leaves on the earth’s surface. He has received several awards, most recently the Red Dot Design Award (2021) and the German Design Award (2019).

Curated by artist Gary Simmons, Heilmann’s friend and former student and colleague at New York’s School of Visual Arts, the exhibition celebrates her talent for distilling complex images and ideas into deceptively simple geometric forms and abstract gestural marks.

  • Justinien Tribillon: Visible upon Breakdown
    Spector Books

    The space in which we live is determined by currents, by transitions. However, we are so used to moving around in this hypermodern world that we don’t even notice the currents that make up our lives. They are invisible, hidden in plain sight – until they collapse. The war in Ukraine is preventing the export of wheat, Covid-19 and timber shortages are making themselves felt in construction projects all over the world: These events are not just human tragedies, they are also an urgent reminder of global dependencies.

    Immemory, “bē-kì-tit” in Taiwanese, is a memory project focusing on the “historical turn” in contemporary art over the past decade in specifically the local context of Keelung. The exhibition considers historical objects and facts as the “thing-in-itself,” aiming to explore Foucault’s concept of “historical a priori” through self-reflexive historiography.
