Opening Thursday October 6, from 6 to 8.30pm
Xippas gallery in Geneva is pleased to present a solo exhibition by Vera Lutter. The German artist, renowned for her single edition photographs created with a camera obscura, will present here images of architecture, urban sites, landscapes and works of art. If the subjects are immediately recognisable, the inversion of the tones and the passage of time thus captured induce a sensation of mirage that plunges the viewer into deep contemplation.
Born in 1960 in Kaiserslautern, Germany, Vera Lutter lives and works in New York.
Her work was part of numerous institutional exhibitions: at Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), USA where she was artist-in-residency during 2017-2018; New Orleans Museum of Arts, USA (2016), Museum of Fine Arts Houston, USA (2015),Musée d’art contemporain de Nîmes, Nîmes, France (2012), Dia:Beacon, Beacon, New York, USA (2012), Kunsthaus Graz, Graz, Austria (2004), Museum of Contemporary Photography, Chicago, USA (2002), among others.
