Hochsommerliche Aerosole Jochen Lempert

Published by Richas Digest, Köln, 2020, leporello (b/w ill.), 14.8 × 21 cm (folded), 59.2 × 21 cm (unfolded), English

Price: €12

Produced on the occasion of Jochen Lempert’s exhibition Hochsommerliche Aerosole at Richas Digest, Köln, 14 August — 5 September 2020

Jochen Lempert photographs the animal world in the most diverse contexts: from their natural habitat to the museum of natural history, from the zoo to the urban environment, in remote places or banal settings and situations. Lempert compiles his findings in a vast archive of images covering an ample spectrum, from common everyday views, to compositions that tend towards abstraction. This interest in the natural world as a subject has been further complemented by his exploration of the properties and materiality of the photographic image. Analogue, black and white, hand-printed in the darkroom, his photographs resist categorization and confront the canons of today’s aesthetic.

More information on the exhibition can be found here.

Plant Volatiles Jochen Lempert

Published by BQ, Berlin, 2016, 64 pages (b/w ill.), 20.5 × 27.5 cm

Price: €26 (Temporarily out of stock)

Produced on the occasion of Jochen Lempert’s exhibition Plant Volatiles at BQ, Berlin in 2016.

“While factual science will never be able to embrace the enchantments of nature, Lempert’s photographs meet up with them when showing swarms of animals, where individuals dissolve and become part of a new form, or when picturing insects as foreign bodies within a context they do not belong to and the coherence of which they irritate. As frozen ephemeral appearances breaking up not only the formal coherence of the image but also its meaning and representational function, they are symbols of time and of the ever impenetrable secret of all living.” from Mousse magazine’s review, available here.

In his presentations, Lempert uses groupings and scale to respond to the exhibition space. He places and selects the photographs thoughtfully, always looking for cross-references and associations, uncovering subtle correspondences. Lempert’s arrangements give us new insights into our own place within the patterns, the structures and even the randomness or the order of the natural world.
