Andreas Gefeller - The Japan Series

Art changes one’s view upon reality. To heighten awareness and expand our perception of a supposedly well-known reality is the central aspiration of the works by Düsseldorf-based photographer Andreas Gefeller. The Japan Series is his youngest series following Supervisions and originated on the occasion of the project »European Eyes on Japan«, in which European photographers are invited annually to work in this Far Eastern country.
The series’ focus lies on the Poles. Gefeller photographs electricity posts in at least two single upward views from a perpendicular position. In the subsequent digital assemblage the pole disappears and innummerable cables and current transformers are converted into an autonomous and abstract composition that spreads in front of a monochrome background. The absence of points of reference and orientation opens up a new perspective on familiar situations. Thus, the Poles transcend their original context in order to awaken associations of underground railway plans, autoroute intersections or night photographs of a city’s pulsating traffic arteries.
