Solo exhibition in the Gallery Springer Berlin from March 4th til July 15th 2023
On the occasion of EMOP Berlin – European Month of Photography, Gallery Springer Berlin presents the first solo exhibition of the artist Loredana Nemes, entitled »Trees, Seas, and the Bee’s Knees«. The selection of series on view includes the latest body of work »Greytree and Heavensea«, created from 2019 to 2023, the cycle »Immergrün« from 2020, the sequence »Blossom Time«, created in 2012, and works from »Greed«, 2014 to 2017.
Solo exhibition at the Kommunale Galerie Berlin from September 4 to October 23, 2022.
Opening on Sunday, September 4, 2022, 12 p.m.
The series “beautiful” by Loredana Nemes is a photographic journey to the country of her childhood: born in 1972 in Sibiu, Romania, the artist returned there annually between 2002 and 2013 – in search of memory, which also finds expression in poetictexts, but all with an eye for the changed present. These are quiet images that capture the unspectacular everyday life, impressive black and white ‘portraits’ that find their counterpart in landscape photographs.
This exhibition is only possible thanks to the generous sponsorship and valuable efforts of Angela Maas and Thomas Kempen from Aachen. My heartfelt thanks go to both of them.
Exhibition in Stadthaus Ulm from March 20th till June 6th 2022
The work “Greytree and Heavensea” by Loredana Nemes was created over a period of two and a half years on the island of Rügen, a place the artist chose as a retreat. In the Jasmund National Park, she began photographing the beech forest and juxtaposes these shots with views of the expanse of the sea. After a dozen visits in every season, the series is now being exhibited for the first time in the Stadthaus Ulm. A publication will be produced this summer.
Solo exhibition at Kunstverein Konstanz from February 19th till April 17th 2022
The portrait is the second oldest genre of photography. Capturing the essence of a person has challenged photographers since the invention of the medium. But how much a picture can say about a person, what becomes visible between the surface and the core of the being, is a much-discussed question. Loredana Nemes also explores the possible gain in knowledge of a portrait with four of her series of works that have already been exhibited many times and are presented at the Kunstverein Konstanz. In a conceptual approach, she questions the possibilities of a portrait and creates idiosyncratic, complex compositions that are rooted in memory and whose visual languages vary in each case.
