Accompanies an exhibition from 23 September 2018-17 February 2019 at the Von der Heydt Kunsthalle in Wuppertal (Germany) Features work created over the course of four decades German sculptor Bogomir Ecker is well-known for his room-sized installations and thought-provoking, enigmatic, objects. He has collected anonymous press photos for many years, from which he assembles large-scale associative tableaux. These images are seen outside their frame of reference and their original function as conveyors of news. Ecker paints over and tears individual photos or entire newspapers, and isolates and distorts particular motifs in order to contest the veracity of the picture or to highlight the selectivity of press coverage. This show of 16 of his photographic panels and a selection of smaller sculptures is presented by the Von der Heydt Kunsthalle in Wuppertal (Germany), and accompanies a sister show of sculpture in a nearby sculpture park. Text in English and German.
