Never Really There
The first exhibition catalog for emerging photographer/filmmaker Sebastian Stumpf explores the gaps in public space and the accessibility of pictorial space in various media. The video project documented in this catalog is part of a group called Leaving White Spaces, which are produced in different art institutions and then projected at the site of their production. There are also 28 photographs of Stumpf literally standing on doors and walls between the gaps of buildings in Tokyo. While there are clear signs of life, the only figure inhabiting these architectural spaces is Stumpf’s. The Leipzig-based artist, a student of renowned photographer Timm Rautert, is included in the upcoming 2010 Berlin Biennale. His photographs flash us back and forth between our lived experiences of cities and the possibilities available in the gaps.
