The architecture forum Die Raumgalerie and the Weissenhofmuseum are jointly presenting a double exhibition on the work of the photo artist Arina Dähnick in the Le Corbusier house in Stuttgart. In recent years, Dähnick has received several awards for her exhibitions and publications, in particular for the work of the architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. Her photographic works can be found in prominent collections.
The first part of the double exhibition takes visitors to the architecture forum Die Raumgalerie, where Dähnick shows an exclusive selection of her “Architectural Portraits”. With them, the photographer takes a very personal and at the same time sensual look at the architecture that she has captured during her numerous travels. The images create a multi-faceted play between external reality and the imaginative inner eye, thereby provoking an almost intimate experience.
What place could be more suitable for the second part of the exhibition than the Weissenhof workshop in Mies van der Rohe’s house. Dähnick’s works from the series “The MIES Project” and previews of her new project “Living with MIES” can be seen here. The partly large-format pictures show reflections, reflections and shadow plays in iconic buildings such as the Berlin National Gallery, the Barcelona Pavilion or the Villa Tugendhat. Far removed from documentary architectural photography, Dähnick manages to come close to the spell and fascination of Mies’ architecture.
