An echo is the reflection of a sound wave and is perceptible as a discrete phenomenon independent of the original. As with any copy, the content repeats, changes, and is lost. Due to aberrations that only seem like mistakes, the replica becomes a new original, over and over again.
As part of the “European Month of Photography”, loops and echoes shows photographic works in dialogue with sculpture and drawing. The exhibition combines the work of eight artists who explore the subject of repetition in abstract, concrete, poetic and humorous ways.
Eva Dittrich, Vanessa Enriquez, Saskia Groneberg, Mika Schwarz, Claus Georg Stabe, Lisa Tiemann, Hayahisa Tomiyasu and Dorothee Waldenmaier all take an inquisitive look at the world. They archive, select, fragment and manipulate their material in a quest to discover new parallels – between microcosm and macrocosm, ephemeral and the infinite, error and system.
