In the exhibition Time Modelling the artist continues his exploration of space and time by photographic means. A photograph always shows a brief moment that has been wrested from the infinite flow of time and captured in the image for eternity. Every photo is therefore a historic document and, as such, connected to the memory of past things. Here the artist achieves to re-connect the image with its actual place, space and time through an exact labelling of his works: the title includes the place, the date and the time of day.
About the artist
Born 1950 in Werdohl, Sauerland, Germany
Lives and works in Munich, Germany
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.
