Panography Mareen Fischinger

You should come to my first solo exhibition in another country!
I have known about this for about ten months and worked hard for it. My biggest self-produced/directed project so far, most of the eleven images have never been seen before & will be between 100 to 180 cm wide, all are open editions of 10.

Vernissage 18 Feb 2010, 6pm til 9pm
Exhibition dates 19 Feb - 20 Mar 2010

at Galerie Bailly Contemporain, 25 quai Voltaire, 75007 Paris
(by the Louvre)

The invitation poster reads:

The photographs

The supposedly »false« photographs, such as high-angle, low-angle, and side views add to an image that amazes the viewer. The secret of its effect is the replication of natural ocular perspective and distortion, while the apparent shortening demonstrates how the eye works as it records visual phenomena and filters our perceived experience through an associative bond: composing into a mental image onto a medium.

Mareen Fischinger’s panographs connect the wrong with the right, where there is no wrong and no right. The instrument is being turned into a reliable resource of objective vision: the juxtaposition and joining of perspectives, shot from one position and furthermore suggesting the super perspective, while also providing a time sequence. Objects double or triple, capturing the ephemeral metamorphosis of the moment.

The viewer can see and experience the world with completely different eyes. The results are technical masterpieces: mosaic photography consisting of hundreds of individual photos, each showing high-resolution detail.


The artist

The young photographer works all over the world but focuses most often on Berlin and New York. Loyal to Düsseldorf, where she studied, Mareen Fischinger set up her studio in the city which saw the creation of the Becher School, »The School of Perception«, linked to industrial architecture.

At the end of the ’90s, Mareen Fischinger wasn’t 15 when she discovered photography. Bound to the necessity of a university education, she turned toward design & communication in 2004. She handled all types of media and tried several artistic fields. It is, however, the »creation of images« that she chose at the end of her studies, a voluntary term to describe her photographs to which she brings skilled retouching and editing. Today, her first and only profession enables her to develop her passion and creativity. She loves to involve herself in all aspects of the creative process of her projects, including the digital portion. Her training allows her to approach the subject with detachment and consider it in the global context.

In a time when industrialization is in the past (the Bechers in particular), Mareen Fischinger is taking a new look at her contemporaries, architecture or spaces of everyday life that she breaks apart, illuminates or dehumanizes.
