120508: Discourse enhancer

Museum der Moderne Salzburg Mönchsberg: Hiroshi Sugimoto Discourse enhancer Hiroshi Sugimoto is one of those artists who make us assume that we have already seen all of his work. The “Theatres”: with the open aperture throughout the entire performance, which makes the entire film coagulate into a white plane, and the visitors dissolve into invisible ghosts - all of this is well known, clear, and beautiful. Or the “Portraits”: Henry VIII with his wives, much more realistic than they really were, scary, eerie. And the “Seascapes”: the horizon positioned exactly in the middle, sky and sea melt into one other, everyone describes it as being meditative, but sometimes it can get a little boring. All this – and more - is shown at the Sugimoto exhibit at the Museum on the Mönchsberg. The works displayed, which were positioned by Sugimoto himself, include the rarely shown blurry photographs of modern architectural icons: Erich Mendelsohn’s Einstein Tower, Le Corbusier’s Villa Savoye. Walter Gropius’ Fagus factory, and Frank Lloyd Wrights’ Guggenheim. All of them are clearly recognizable, a fact that reveals their outstanding landmark character. Among the works are also the dioramas that he had photographed in the American Museum of Natural History in the 70s. “No matter how artificial an object might be, once photographed, it is almost real”, Sugimoto once said. Photography has always dealt with the question of where deception begins and reality ends. This discourse is significantly enhanced by Sugimoto: he lets artificial objects appear real and real objects appear unreal.
