Celebrating its 20th anniversary, Robert Morat Galerie is very happy to be able to present the first German solo exhibition for British artist Hannah Hughes.

Hannah Hughes is a visual artist working in photography, collage, and sculpture. Her work explores the relationship between image, object and language, focusing on the potential of negative space and the salvaging and re-use of discarded materials. Hughes’s practice involves strategies of fragmentation and reconstruction. Her two-dimensional collages are often described as either flat sculptures or sculptural photographs.

Hannah Hughes uses materials that invite the memory of the everyday touch, such as paper stocks used in glossy magazines, pulp packaging, and clay. This focus on tactility positions the work in relation to the body’s boundaries and the spaces created where bodies intersect with their surroundings. She examines edges within the photographic image – for example, in her series of two-part C-Type collages, one form intersects the surface of another, creating a visible border within the photograph, which can be viewed fully from the side.

Hannah Hughes (*1975, UK) graduated from the University of Brighton in 1997 and has since exhibited in the UK and internationally. She lives and works in London.

Bernhard Fuchs’ new series of landscape and nature studies is titled “MÜHL”. The artist, who lives and works in Düsseldorf, regularly returns to his native region in Upper Austria and takes long walks there, in the Mühlviertel. He captures details of nature: stones, water, trees, sky and attempts to appropriate them visually. He creates simple, calm photographs that, in their visual density, capture what is most difficult to capture: an atmosphere, a feeling of belonging and a connection to a place and the elements. At the same time, the series is a reflection on perception itself – on how things that were thought to be familiar can appear strange and unfathomable when viewed in great detail.

Bernhard Fuchs, born in 1971 in Haslach, Austria, studied with Bernd Becher at the Academy in Düsseldorf and with Timm Rautert at the Academy in Leipzig. Critically acclaimed previous series and publications include “AUTOS” (Koenig Books, 2008), “ROADS AND PATHS” (Koenig Books, 2010) and “WOODLANDS” (Koenig Books, 2014). Important museums such as the Sprengel Museum in Hanover and the Josef Albers Museum Quadrat in Bottrop have already dedicated large solo exhibitions to his work. The monograph for the current exhibition was published in 2020 by Koenig Books, London.
