Franka Hörnschemeyer
At this year's Art Düsseldorf, we are placing a special focus on the work of FRANKA HÖRNSCHEMEYER (* 1958), whose expansive, kinetic sculpture "Oszilloskop" was selected for a sculpture space this year. The sculptor understands space as a material that is characterised by formal complexity and ambiguity of content. She uses industrially manufactured building materials such as formwork elements. Franka Hörnschemeyer's oeuvre includes expansive installations and sculptural works, film, photography and sound. We are currently showing Franka Hörnschemeyer in the gallery with the solo exhibition "Volume of Uncertainty (Shift 224)", at the centre of which is the site-specific installation that gives the exhibition its title.

Thomas Florschuetz
Another focus is on the photographic work of THOMAS FLORSCHUETZ (*1957). He can be seen with the early four-part body image "Untitled (Cross) 03" from 1988, the digital image presentation "Gestirn" from photographs of East Berlin from the 1980s and the photograph Untitled (SBM) 05 from 2022, which focuses on the Sítio Burle Marx estate west of Rio de Janeiro designed by Brazilian landscape architect Roberto Burle Marx. His image-analysing and constructive view is present in all the works.

Tanya Poole
With works on paper, photographs and sculptures by four artists, we are also focussing on the question of how people perceive and influence their environment. Since TANYA POOLE (*1971) has been living in France, her interest has focussed on the nature surrounding her, which sharpens her perception and leads to masterful, large-format ink paintings on paper, e.g. about insects but also the full moon at night.

Caroline von Grone
The portrait-like depiction of a tree pair by CAROLINE VON GRONE (*1963), sometimes seems like a closely entwined couple, rooted in place, unable to free themselves from their precarious position. The powerful lines and the partly motivically dissolved colors create an unexpected aura, reminiscent of nature cult legends and myths, which seem to tell of hidden life in nature.

Lena von Goedeke

Simone Nieweg

Evelyn Hofer
The photographs of EVELYN HOFER (1922-2009) testify to a sensitive approach to people and places. Hofer's iconic portraits captivate with the colour intensity of the dye transfers. Hofer is one of the early colour and street photographers.

Anja Bohnhof
ANJA BOHNHOF (*1974) is represented with a photograph from the "Tables" series from the "Typosphere" project. It shows the workplace of a so-called pavement typist in Calcutta, who offers his services on the pavement in front of the High Court and fills out forms with his typewriter, for example. As in her other series created in India, Bohnhof also focuses here on a setting that reveals many aspects of the world's most populous country, which is known for its stark contrasts despite its ongoing modernisation. At first glance, the beauty of the writing centres, which Anja Bohnhof isolates in the picture by using a studio background and skilful lighting, is fascinating, allowing the viewer to observe every last detail. But the return to the analogue, which can be felt in many areas of life in Europe, also plays a role. And so the photographs in the "Typosphere" series also address the longing for tactile, natural materials, sustainability, individuality and deceleration.
