GALERIE SUPPER is pleased to announce our first presentation of selected works by Sebastian Wehrle alongside internationally renowned photographers such as Cindy Sherman, Peter Lindbergh or Hiroshi Sugimoto within the framework of the upcoming exhibition Sebastian Wehrle and Friends (20.07. - 29.09.2019).
The exhibition will focus on photographic strategies of staging. The portrayal of the self and others has gained relevance within the realm of social networks in the past years. However, the staged portrait as such is as old as art itself with its hight peak in baroque ruler's portraits. Here, the "Real" constantly blurs with the "Ideal". Starting from Wehrle's impressive portraits of proudly looking, tatooed or pierced women in traditional costumes, the exhibition draws parallels to elaborately staged fashion photography as well as to artistic appropriations thereof. Here, the staging of authenticity and the authenticity of staging go hand in hand.
