Laetitia Gendre – Like a Slug Sticks to the Ground
For this new exhibition at Galerie Thomas Fischer, Laetitia Gendre presents colorful works on paper that deal with the relationship between image and language created by search engines such as Google along with a series of graphite drawings entitled Secret Passages and a mural. The drawings and the mural pay metaphorical homage to the transitive and ungraspable in contrast to the ever-increasing collusion between words and things and to the imperative to define and classify. The title Like a Slug Sticks to the Ground, is a simile used by Belgian philosopher Pascal Chabot to describe how relationship between language and things should not operate.
The gallery will be closed for winter break from 22 December 2022 until 12 January 2023.
Sebastian Stumpf – Îles sans nom
Îles sans nom is Sebastian Stumpf’s fifth exhibition at Galerie Thomas Fischer. He discovered the islands without a name during a research stay on the Atlantic coast of France. They are rocks offshore that appear or disappear depending on the wind, waves, and tidal flow. Due to their number and small size, they are not marked on nautical maps. In a series of analogue black and white photographs, they present themselves as isolated forms between water and sky, as visual elements without dimension, as bodies of stone. A cartographic rendering of Sebastian Stumpf’s movements between the coastline and the open sea supplements the series.
With works by Joachim Bandau, Margrét H. Blöndal, Dirk Braeckman, Marcel Frey, Noi Fuhrer, Seiichi Furuya, Laetitia Gendre, Friedemann Heckel, Irmel Kamp, Brian O’Doherty, Sebastian Stumpf.
The new exhibition can be seen until 30 July 2022.
Noi Fuhrer – a Flash at Midday
Galerie Thomas Fischer presents its first exhibition of works by Tel-Aviv-born Berlin-based artist Noi Fuhrer. With her unique approach to the medium of charcoal on paper, Noi Fuhrer creates large scale drawings that have a haunting presence, simultaneously sculptural and phantasmagoric. Unraveling a peculiarity within everyday moments, the scenes depicted spark a sense of narrative while drawing attention to their own glowing physicality.
