Photo Basel 2019: Hans-Christian Schink and Hiroyuki Masuyama
Photo Basel 2019
From the 11th to the 16th of June the Photo Basel 2019 takes place, the first address for contemporary photography during Art Basel.
Invited by curator Daniel Blochwitz, we take this delightful opportunity to present works by Hiroyuki Masuyama and Hans-Christian Schink. Common thematic link between Schink and Masuyama is a fascinating way of dealing with the concept of time.
Hans Christian Schink demonstrates the passing of time, visualizing the path of the sun through the day and across the sky in a striking way. His series "1h" has established a new chapter in the history of black and white photography.
Hiroyuki Masuyama brings space and time into sensual compositions that play with the viewer's perception: the works of well-known representatives of art history (as Caspar David Friedrich) are newly formed in the temporal reality of their places.
"The time levels merged in this way make it clear once again that art always has only one present. It's the one in which thinking about them takes place." Michael Freitag
