JUERGEN TELLER 'I AM FIFTY'
For his first solo show at Suzanne Tarasieve gallery, one of the most emblematic, and now middle aged, photographers of his generation presents 3 new series. Woo (2013) was made following the headlining exhibition of the same name at the ICA, London, last year, in which the works were assembled to form wallpaper covering an entire room of the art centre; for this series, Teller has isolated certain segments. Never before exhibited, the series Masculin (2013) was made after Teller visited the exhibition Masculin/Masculin at the Musée d’Orsay which featured one of his self-portraits. Each photo from the Orsay exhibition is echoed by a self-portrait of the artist sweating profusely as he exercises in a gym. The last series Irene im Wald (2012) is the most intimate and personal of the three: these small-format photos follow Juergen’s mother on a walk through the forest of Erlangen.
Until 25 May. 11am-7pm. Closed Mon, Tue.
