Tafelwerk: Arbeiten 1996–2016
For over twenty years, Leipzig-based photographer Frank Mädler (b. 1963) has worked with serial and conceptual approaches to making and curating his images. Accompanying the artist’s solo exhibition at the Leonhardi-Museum, Tafelwerk (2016), this well-designed monograph presents a comprehensive overview of his work from 1996–2016. The color images, grouped in fifteen chapters and defined by a single word such as, Meadow or Shine, create poetic explorations that begin as natural photographic compositions but morph into something very different. It is through the artist’s manipulation of the image while being exposed in the film camera that a more representational work is created. The oversized format, lush color reproductions and clean design create an exceptional viewing experience for over 150 images. An introductory text by Agnes Matthias gives history and background to Mädler and his ethereal images.
