Descripción de la Exposición
In this exhibition, Heinz Peter Knes lays out a set of gestures, postures, and natural movements. The wall installation consists of about 150 montage sheets, each focusing a particular body part and its movement, collecting and connecting different gestures. Single protagonists and their individual traits make way for a universal vocabulary of stylized embodiment. In contrast to the format of portraiture, which aims to capture a person(ality), here the anonymous encounters set its sight on the photographic process. As the focus moves towards the fragmentary, the one-to-one situation between the photographer and the subject becomes less intimate. The grid-like structure on the wall is partitioned in components that fixate the attention to one physical expression each: bowing back, walking, the knee, expression of hands, resting head… The photographs show gestures that are familiar to both the viewer and the photographed subject, while the focus on the fragment and its repetition ... allows the viewer to compare them with their own habitualised appearance. As with attitudes and modes of behavior or bodily rhetoric in general, specific postures introduce social and cultural codes involving the body and its textures. In the exhibition Gesture Studies, the set of gestures embodies material, which remains latent and breaks out from that living reality, that eliminate codes and style, and thus go beyond representation and the symbolical, while gestural codes are deprived of a shared system of reference.
