Six-Part Series by Andreas Gursky at Sprüth Magers in Berlin

BERLIN.- Monika Sprüth and Philomene
present an exhibition of new works by Andreas Gursky in Berlin. The
series of
works represents an important new development in Gursky’s practice in
which the
artist reassesses the way he works with photography. Like many of
Gursky’s works, the new, six-part series Ocean I-VI (2009-2010) goes
back to a
spontaneous visual experience.

flying one
night from Dubai to Melbourne he stared for some time at the flight
monitor: the
Horn of Africa to the far left, a tip of Australia to the far right –
and there
in between the blue void. Then all of a sudden he saw the graphic
on the monitor as a picture.
