From April 15th 2011, Daelim Comtemporary Art Museum proudly presents by an internationally well-known fashion photographer, Juergen Teller both in commercial and fine arts.
Co-organized by Le Consortium, Contemporary Art Center in Dijon, France, this exhibition delivers a message about the ‘Real Beauty’ away from artificial aesthetics by freely showing sexual expressions through true communication between the artist and models.
For the first time in Korea, photographic works of Juergen Teller, who shoots familiar foreign fashion brand campaigns such as Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs, Vivienne Westwood, Celine, Missoni, Yves Saint Laurent and Puma, will be presented.
By introducing Juergen Tellers’ commercial Photos which are reflected in artistic inspiration, this exhibition highlights his fashion shoots which are familiar to us in a new way and offers a discussable opportunity what kind of value aesthetically and technologically we pursue compare to the existing commercial photos.
Working with well-known Models and celebrities like Kate Moss, Pamela Anderson and Raquel Zimmermann, Juergen Teller catches not only the simple, made-up beauty of commercial photographs, but also new characteristics that are hidden in inner sides and presents, his true intention, ‘Real Beauty’.
In this exhibition, Daelim Contemporary Art Museum presents Juergen Teller’s commercial photographs of last 10 years of Marc Jacobs campaigns, portrait photographs of famous artists such as David Hockney, Roni Horn, Richard Hamilton, William Eaggleston showing that Juergen Teller not only have a quality as a fashion photographer but also have a view as fine artist. Through Teller’s unique philosophy of not having a definite boundary of commercial and non-commercial photographs, his photographs explore different value from existing commercial photographs and by showing a documentary 'Ten days in Havana', which was shot in the capital city of Cuba, photographer’s various visions can be seen. The installation of the works creates unexpected and interesting visual narratives and allows viewers to imagine their own.
