Ulrich Seidl, 1998-2014 at OstLichtFor the first time, the Gallery OstLicht dedicates a show to Ulrich Seidl’s photographic works. The exhibition includes selected stills taken from the late Nineties until today: Models, 1998, Hundstage (Dog Days), 2001, Brüder, lasst uns lustig sein (Brothers, Let Us Be Merry), 2006, Import Export, 2007, the Paradies Trilogy Liebe, Glaube, Hoffnung (Paradise. Love, Faith, Hope), 2012 and Im Keller (In the Basement), 2014.
Ulrich Seidl’s unerring eye and his instinct for composition are undisputed. His tableaus, generated with almost photographic meticulousness, provide far more than fleeting insights into the often oppressive subjects of his oeuvre as a filmmaker: composed with the greatest accuracy down to the most minute detail, their clear aesthetics and severe geometry render them convincing.
