WOLFGANG TILLMANS: The Point Is Matter

March 25 - May 25

WHO
Wolfgang Tillmans

WHAT
The exhibition is the German photographer’s (b.1968) first exhibition in Hong Kong since 2018, and marks his 5th show with the gallery. His diverse body of work is distinguished by observation of his surroundings and an ongoing investigation of the photographic medium’s foundations. The exhibition brings together a wide range of subjects and themes of ongoing interest to the artist. Evoking shifts and adaptations across time and place, they include depictions of different, changing forms of atmosphere and elusive natural phenomena. Also featured will be a new video work by the artist.

WHY
Guided by a profound sense of curiosity and care toward his subjects, the artist seeks to expand the poetic and formal possibilities of photography. The works are shot in Addis Ababa, Berlin, Lagos, and Mongolia, with those taken in Hong Kong and Shenzhen; he invokes resonant associations between the local and the world at large, advocating for an experience of connectedness that is rooted in the process of looking.
