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.
The opening reception will be held on Friday, 19 August 2022, 6-9 pm.
Galerie Thomas Fischer has been nominated for the VBKI-Preis Berliner Galerien for Sebastian Stumpf’s exhibition Îles sans nom. The prize is awarded by the Verein Berliner Kaufleute und Industrieller (VBKI) together with Landesverband Berliner Galerien (lvbg). Galerie Thomas Fischer is partner of Berlin Art Week.
