Press release

For his third solo exhibition at Galerie Dix9, the artist has worked on technically obsolete historical photographic objects such as slides or handcolored black and white prints. Both analytical and empathic he transforms these objects from the 20th Century and brings them into the now. By underlining the aesthetic and poetic qualities of technical imagery through the ideas of «photographic ruins» or even «photogenic photographs» Riemer expands the understanding of the contemporary dimension of the usage of photography.

In his new series, shown here for the first time, the artist focuses on
art history slides. These slides were once used to represent the visual canon during lectures. Obsolete today, they have been replaced by digital images. The source material is visually offered to the beholder in the form of large scale ultra high resolution reproductions. It highlights the materiality and all the traces of time that were accumulated since then, revealing what we normally could not see with our eyes.
