OPENING RECEPTION THURSDAY, MAY 17, 5:30 – 8 PM
“In 1968, Jäger developed the idea of Generative Photography, which in his words consists of “finding a new world inside the camera and trying to bring it out with a methodical, analytical system.” Jäger’s generative color work derives from the color spectrum and the refraction of white light. Whether analogical or digital, the work is not a representation of color but a reflection of it. “Generative Color. Photographs” is a cross section exhibition of Gottfried Jäger’s exploration of the color spectrum made between 1965 and 2000. In Jäger’s words, “The objective of my work is to induce a generative effect: to constantly provoke an endless generation of new forms and elements in a continuous process of renewal and rebirth. What is intended is not a standstill, but the image of an exchange, its infiltration, and its conversion. An aesthetic of transition.””
