Solo show Carli Hermès on display at Kunst Rai 2013
During Kunst Rai 2013, the art fair for contemporary art in Amsterdam, Galerie Pien Rademakers will have a solo show by Carli Hermès on display.
From 15- 20 May 2013
Hermès will show an overview of his own work in recent years including a number of new works. Together they will form a selection of his most iconic photographs. Videos of the “making of” of various series will be on show as well.
The stand will include a number of works from his most recent series. For this series Hermès makes use of light projections on nude models for his photographs. The silhouettes of these models are a particular image in itself, but the colourful projections create a whole new dimension in the work. The power and energy that the photos exude, and the exploration of the tension between fiction and reality bear Hermès’ unmistakable signature.
Carli Hermès (1963, Schijndel) is one of The Netherlands’ most famous fashion and advertising photographers. Hermès perfectly combines storytelling and eroticism and he reduces his images to their most powerful essence. Hermès studied photography at the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague and at the Arts Institute in Bournemouth, England. He had exhibitions at the Groninger Museum, Dutch Fotomuseum Rotterdam and photo festival Naarden. Gallery Pien Rademakers has represented Hermès’ free work for more than ten years.
