New works: two photographic series
Mai 36 Gallery has been presenting Thomas Ruff's work on a regular basis since 1988. For the current exhibition of two photographic series, he has once again adopted new techniques: on the one hand, digitally produced colour photograms, and on the other, digitally processed vintage photographs with the aesthetic appearance of negatives. Another of Thomas Ruff's interests is the possibility of inverting images - in other words, producing negatives of them. For this, he uses existing historical images and negatives. This creates an entirely different effect, expressing an emphasis and concentration on compositional aspects. The new group of works he has been creating since this year, titled Negatives, is represented in our exhibition by the series neglal, which is being shown to the public for the very first time Opening: Sunday, June 15, 11 a.m. - 5 p.m.
