Mysterious and Paradoxical Photographic Works. It is an old question: what does a photograph actually show? Christiane Feser (b. Würzburg, 1977; lives and works in Frankfurt am Main) has quite literally added new facets to it. At first glance, her pictures show repetitive geometric structures: rectangles and triangles that sometimes bulge out in a relieflike fashion but on the whole remain integrated in a rhythmical planar pattern. They are based on models the artist builds by creasing and folding paper before taking photographs of them; she then subjects the resulting pictures to another round of sculptural modification and photographs them yet again. Both the photographic compositions and her photoobjects in space are independent and unique works. Feser's art, that is to say, occupies the very moment at which reproduction collapses into abstraction. The works show abstract structures, but also depict the material out of which the artist has molded these structures. Christiane Feser's pictures of models do not refer to any reality they depict, but only to themselves, and yet they are not abstract photographs. In a processbased fusion of sculpture and photography, the "latent constructs" turn photography's traditional claim to objectivity and truth on its head. With essays by Bettina Ruhrberg, Ludwig Seyfarth, and Michael Stoeber.
