Robert Voit’s exhibition ‘Equilibrium. Photographs’ continues at the Peter Sillem Gallery in Frankfurt until May 8, 2021.
Ten years after the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear accident in March 2011, the Peter Sillem Gallery in Frankfurt am Main presents a solo exhibition by Robert Voit. The German photographer has travelled to Fukushima every year since the tsunami, documenting the aftermath of the disaster. In parallel, Voit also started to portray Mount Fuji as something of a counterbalance – hence the title, ‘Equilibrium’. The resulting exhibition juxtaposes both facets of contemporary Japan: the long-term consequences of the nuclear disaster, and the timeless presence of Mount Fuji.
Robert Voit (b. 1969) initially studied photography in Munich, before becoming a masters student at the Dusseldorf Art Academy under Thomas Ruff. From 2011 to 2012, Robert Voit taught as a lecturer and guest professor at the Nuremberg Academy of Fine Arts. Voit has won numerous awards, including the European Architectural Photography Prize (2003) and the Hausderkunst Award (2004). His work is represented in numerous renowned collections.
