Within the framework of the Salzburg Festival, the Leica Gallery Salzburg will be showing photographs by Robert Mertens and Heidi Simon at the Großen Festspielhaus, from July 23 to August 31. In Bretter, die die Welt bedeuten (Boards that signify the world) the two photographers focus on the technical preparations for the festival.
The project, which came about in collaboration with the Leica Gallery Salzburg, offers a glimpse behind the scenes in the various festival venues, such as the Große Festspielhaus, the Haus für Mozart and the Felsenreiterschule.
Mertens and Simon have developed and produced dynamic black and white pictures and creative series concepts for the project, introducing their artistic themes such as movement and change into the process.
