Startgalerie im MUSA Maximilian Pramatarov – Bow / Lost 13.11. 2014 – 11.12. 2014 From aesthetic trash dumps to psychedelic forests By Wolfgang Pichler On the occasion of the Month of Photography, the Startgalerie im MUSA is showing Bow/Lost by Maximilian Pramatarov Maximilian Pramatarov primarily devotes his attention to the outskirts of modern metropolises, similar to the photographic tradition of Elfriede Mejchar and Gerd and Hilla Becher. Whether it is a junkyard or a somewhat unkempt, and all but idyllic forest area – found only in the outskirts of residential or industrial areas, and for which neither the municipal park authorities nor the landscape persevering farmers consider themselves responsible. The artist (born 1979) presents such areas and their distinctive character in a very individual way. In addition to the photos depicting London’s workers’ boroughs, reminiscent of Dan Graham’s pioneering work “Homes for America” (1967), three lenticular images are – due to their almost painterly quality – among the highlights. It remains unclear whether or not the psychedelic colour effects that have been worked into the otherwise rather quiet pictures insinuate more than just an effect. They definitely do not disturb the consistent overall impression – on the contrary, they ensure not to miss the irritating momentum. The aforementioned junkyard with its delicate pink heap of metal and its stringent composition is the absolute highlight of the exhibition and it clearly proves that no special effects are needed to deliver good photo art. A photographer’s special – and ideally, also aesthetically educated view, is the essential basis for good photos. And it isn’t relevant that not all works shown in this exhibition meet these high standards.
