From 4 September the internationally active photographer Thomas Zika will be showing works entitled “Butterflies – Dem Admiral das Leben gerettet”. in our gallery. In contrast to the sober, objective depiction of butterflies in “Papillons” last exhibition, Zika now finds an opulent and very poetic pictorial language for the depiction of butterflies. In large-format and color-intensive prints, the viewer is confronted with an exuberant nature that literally swells out of the picture, thus counteracting the technical gesture of the medium of photography.
