Two Poems, Some Pairs
On the 27th of March, MUT inaugurated its second exhibition: Two Poems, Some Pairs, a solo show by german photographer Jochen Lempert, that will run until 27 July 2018.
Lempert, winner of the 2017 edition of This Is Not a Prize, combines a scientific approach with a strongly poetic language. On the one hand he explores, gathers, catalogues, organizes his subjects, while on the other he grasps their lyrical and formal aspects. The viewpoints through which Lempert captures his images reject an anthropocentric perspective on the world, but they do not set out to idealize nature with respect to humankind. In his work space, time and hierarchies are nullified in the name of a “co-evolution” that puts animals, plants, organisms, human beings and their activities on the same level.
