How intensively do photographers examine their motifs? How much attention to they pay to individuals who view their pictures? The photographer Thomas Bergner dedicates himself to this question.

Constantin Jaxy

hovering screws and sham blossoms
Constantin Jaxy (* 1957 in Bremen), who studied at the art academies in Braunschweig and The Hague, is presenting a selection from his oeuvre in a chronologically structured overview of 30 years of creativity. What distinguishes the works presented is their affinity with the technical, with the architectural and the constructed, whereby Jaxy creates a kind of parallel universe to the technical world. His work is multifaceted: drawings, prints, paintings, objects and wall objects, sculptures, room constructions, light, sound, and shadow installations, which are all closely interwoven with one another and are each part of his overall expression as an artist. In this comprehensive form, the book is a premiere.
