Candida Höfer: From Düsseldorf
 
May 8 - June 20, 2015
 
Opening Reception: Thursday, May 7, 6-8pm
 
Sean Kelly is delighted to announce From Düsseldorf, a solo exhibition of recent work by prominent German photographer Candida Höfer. This will be Höfer’s first exhibition with the gallery and her first exhibition in New York since 2013.

On view for the first time in the United States, the photographs presented in this exhibition were all taken in Düsseldorf, Germany — the city where Höfer first studied photography under Bernd and Hilla Becher and which, to this day, remains an important influence on her work. In the mid 70s, Höfer and her peers at the exalted Kunstakademie, known as The Düsseldorf School of Photography, created one of the most remarkable artistic movements in Germany since the Bauhaus. In the years following, Höfer has continued to photograph Düsseldorf with a fresh eye, revealing an entirely new, and unexpected, minimalist direction in her work. 

Alongside the meticulously composed, large-scale, color images of interiors for which Höfer is known, the exhibition presents photographs from the artist’s remarkable new body of work. Höfer’s latest compositions focus primarily on architectural detail and structure, color and form, utilizing extreme angles and close-ups to interrogate abstract forms. These fascinating new images juxtaposed against the Baroque churches, Rococo halls, and Modern opera houses, quintessentially representative of Höfer’s oeuvre, create an exciting visual dialogue that explores the past, present, and future of both the city and the artist.
