Geographies des Limites Humaines

The exhibition and book Roselyne Titaud – “Géographies des Limites Humaines” explore the motif world of the artist Roselyne Titaud (b. 1977). From 22 February until 21 July 2019 Die Photographische Sammlung/SK Stiftung Kultur is showing interiors, still lifes and landscapes, presented as balanced, matter-of-fact colour photographs. The majority of the still lifes were taken in private apartments in Berlin. In many cases elements from nature such as artificial flowers, plant ornaments or animal reproductions play a role – for the artist they provide an imaginary bridge which leads to the area of real landscape and connects internal and external space.

Within the framework of “Artist meets Archive”, a project of the Internationale Photoszene Köln, a special project will be introduced as of 3 May: Entitled “The Lobster Quadrille” Titaud will present works from the collection of Die Photographische Sammlung together with her own photographs in an associative dialogue. The individual image will become part of a visual alphabet which facilitates new perspectives. Her curator-explorer gaze leads the artist back into her own archive.

A publication will be prepared for the exhibitions in co-operation with the artist. It will contain a preface by Gabriele Conrath-Scholl and a text by Jule Schaffer.
