Sebastian Riemer: Photographic abstractions

Written by Sabine Küper on . Posted in Feed the Sense

Sebastian Riemer uses Photography as a medium for producing abstractions of
different surfaces. In Istanbul he chose wall pictures as
motives. Mainly children stick them on walls in poor
neighborhoods like Balat. Football stars, toys and comic strips
are combined to a new narration with no certain plot.

The amplification of the Photograph transforms the picture to a
new esthetic. They get a photographic abstraction of reality.

Sebastian Riemer stayed in Istanbul for six month on behalf of
a residency program funded by the German art foundation
“Kunststiftung NRW”.
