One-Single-Artwork-Show #7 - Ute Schendel - Artist in Focus - December 2017

„Landscapes appear in Ute Schendel’s photographs as projection spaces in which natural light acts as the director. To capture this light in its sweeping impact and use it to steer our view of landscape as a continuum over times, spaces and cultures in an unpretentious, almost casual manner is the starting point and core“ (...) of Schendel´s landscape motif. „Each light sets its own accents, lets structures and surfaces appear that emphasise detail and tell of the history or cultivation of a landscape, or fade them out almost completely in shadowy darkness. Whether moonlight, sunshine, diffuse lights, murky or garish light: even the lightest gradual difference is subtly regulated and precisely balanced in all light-dark tones and grey shadings in the black and white photographs, which now and again remind one of drawings or monochrome painting.“

Photographer Ute Schendel (born 1948 in Berlin) lives and works in Basel. Her work has been exhibited in numerous solo and group exhibitions at Nietzsche-Haus, Sils Maria (CH), Deutsche Nationalbibliothek, Frankfurt (D), Kunstmuseum Olten (CH), Landesmuseum Mainz (D), Kunstverein Hattingen (D), Kunstverein Schallstadt (D), Galerie Karin Sutter, Basel  (CH), Galerie Hutter und Wirth, Basel (CH), Galerie Mesmer, Basel (CH), Galerie Gilla Lörcher I Contemporary Art, Berlin (D), among others.

Between 14 December 2016 and 19 January 2017 Galerie Gilla Lörcher introduced a new exhibition format and a series of 6 exhibitions that did only last one week. The so-called one-single-artwork-show exhibit format will be continued from time to time and will contrast the usual 6 weeks exhibits.
