“Make it your own story” – the title of the exhibition is a call for participation. A work of art can only unfold its power and affect the viewer as long as it is perceived, thus becoming part of one’s own story.
Susanne Roewer and Hubertus Hamm are highly interested in materials and their distinctive properties. Deliberate yet playful, they consciously shape the different materials, putting the latter’s specific traits at the service of their art.

Trained as a photographer, Hubertus Hamm departs from the beaten track of classic photography, often even forgoing the very medium in which he was schooled. However, his artistic approach moves away from classic photography, reflecting on modalities of the image by exploring and transcending the limits of the medium in terms of three-dimensionality and materiality.

In the works of Susanne Roewer often two conflicting materials collide, forming a fragile new entity. Susanne Roewer’s sculptures in particular are rooted in her exploration of elementary materials, such as metal, stone or glass, combining figurative elements with an abstract form language. During the process of creation, the artist is frequently guided by the material and its specific qualities.
