beautiful – Photographs and Texts

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.
