“Max Sloboddas großformatige Bilder der Ausstellung STRANGER THINGS lassen an unbekannte Flugobjekte denken oder übersinnliche Erscheinungen. Tatsächlich experimentiert der Düsseldorfer Fotograf gern, auch bereits während seines Studiums an der Fachhochschule Dortmund.
Slobodda inszeniert die unterschiedlichsten Objekte im Raum, ergänzt grelles Licht und eine Prise Zufall. Seine Motivation ist die Lust am Spiel, denn der Grat zur Langeweile im Bild ist schmal. Doch seine Bilder sind herausfordernd und einnehmend zugleich. Der Fotograf erweitert seinen Bildraum durch das Unbegreifliche, das Unbekannte. Und nimmt die Besucher/innen mit auf eine Reise hinter die Kulissen der fotografischen Wirklichkeit. Was auch immer der Blick auf seine verrätselten, phantastischen Motive in den Köpfen der Betrachtenden auslöst – entziehen kann sich diesen fesselnden, plakativen Bildwelten niemand.
Max Slobodda, geboren 1987, studierte Fotografie an der Fachhochschule Dortmund. Auf der Suche nach neuen Herausforderungen in der Fotografie begann er dort bereits mit der Arbeit an STRANGER THINGS, die ihn bis heute begleitet. Als freier Fotograf lebt und arbeitet Max Slobodda in Düsseldorf.”

Die Ausstellung wird kuratiert von Bettina Michel.
Vernissage: Donnerstag, 16.02.2023, 19 Uhr, TREFFPUNKT Rotebühlplatz

Group exhibition

Berlin

"ORACLES are much like portals: They are asked to provide meaning, but speak in riddles, showing an ambiguous glimpse into possible futures. A gathering of traces of what will happen, might happen, might already have happened, or never will happen at all.

We are excited to present the photography exhibition ORACLE at Zuostant (Nazarethkirchstr. 37, 13347 Berlin-Wedding) from November 26th until December 4th 2022, with works by Fabrizio Bilello, Melina Mörsdorf, Max Slobodda, Harriet von Froreich, Jan Philip Welchering and Greta Wildhage.

See you at the opening: Saturday, 26.11., 6pm!"
