By means of cutting and layering multiple photographs, Hubertus Hamm transforms the two-dimensional medium of photography into works that extend into three-dimensional space.

Our exhibition presents a new series of photographic layerings. The point of departure for these works are images of snow-covered branches. By layering multiple identical photographs congruently and then tearing away the upper layers, Hubertus Hamm reveals previously hidden layers. This creates a three-dimensional, relief-like structure, drawing attention to the materiality of the medium paper, whilst at the same time mirroring the motif – the layers of snow-covered branches – in an almost mimetic manner.
