Pius Fox and Marc Klee address the spatial surroundings of their living realities in very different ways. In the exhibition Dwellers, they capture the two poles of spatial experience with the photographic eye – proximity and distance. In formal terms, however, the photographs converge in the moment of abstraction. Real space transforms into structure in both of these artists’ works.

Pius Fox works chiefly with surface textures that arise in close-up and detail shots, thereby transforming the photographic space into a web of sensual qualities. The shapes, which are often treated in terms of painting or drawing, contain the possibility of concrete space, or the image lingers as a vague atmosphere.

Marc Klee’s photographs are hyper-orchestrations of spatial structures laid out in a perspective that extends into the distance. Using a light grid made of lasers, the artist systematically lights locations he selects in the urban space. The surroundings vanish into the impenetrable darkness and recover their third dimension.
