From 26 February to 1 May 2016, the Tumuult Gallery in Berlin presents the exhibition 'I wish to see where the winds meet' – featuring exclusive heliogravure prints by British Leica photographer Christian Bragg.
The exhibition 'I wish to see where the winds meet' revolves around a publication that has also been turned into an installation. The Tumuult Studio in Berlin as well as the Atelier Helio’g in Paris each created a project with the works of Paris-based photographer Christian Bragg (born in the UK in 1979). Both are now introduced at the Tumuult Gallery. It is the first time the emerging photographer's work will be presented to the public.
'I wish to see where the winds meet' is a hand-crafted photo book consisting of 37 exclusive heliogravure prints created at the Atelier Helio’g by Fanny Boucher – making it a rare collector’s item. This has now been re-interpreted by the Tumuult collective with an experimental approach, whereby the book itself is turned into the exhibited object.
The publication tells of Bragg's personal journey, driven by a quest for revelation and the search for oneself. His analogue black-and-white images, taken with a Leica M7 à-la-carte, capture contrasts that go beyond those of dark and light. The photographer offers up a personal story of memories, a 'novel written in images' that inspires the viewer to imagine their own narrative.
The opening reception takes place on 25 February 2016 from 19.00. For further details visit Facebook
