Michael Nguyen – Clarity of Seeing, Fantasy of Interpretation
The exhibition shows photographs taken between 2020 - 2022: architectural objects, plays of light and shadow, as well as reflections and architectures, which he took in various cities in Europe.
From Monday to Friday, the exhibition can also be visited in the evening and at night until midnight.
Michael Nguyen is a flâneur. On foot, he seeks the encounter worth seeing in detail. His photographs show us buildings, streets, staircases, vehicles, and people of the kind that we might encounter at any time by chance in our everyday lives. The pictures confront us with single views of elements, focus their colors and forms in detail, and leave aside the manifold abundance of the surrounding. In this way, the images unfold a power of the particular: Something like this, but exactly how we haven't seen things before.
