Exhibition of New Photographs by German Artist Andreas Gefeller at Hasted Kraeutler


NEW YORK, NY.- Hasted Kraeutler presents an exhibition of new photographs by Andreas Gefeller. This is Andreas’ third solo exhibition with Hasted Kraeutler, following Andreas Gefeller: Recent Work (2009) and Andreas Gefeller: Supervisions (2007). The Japan Series is a body of work that Gefeller created in March and early April 2010 in the “Tottori Prefecture of Japan for the European Eyes on Japan/Japan Today” photography project. During his time in Japan, Gefeller photographed the elaborate, aboveground power cables that are ubiquitous in the prefecture. When photographing the cables, his perspective was from below, against a white or black sky, as though he was isolating them in a studio. For each work he digitally assembled at least two viewpoints so that the pole disappears and the cables and transformers float in the composition and become abstract.
