Jochen Lempert
Field Guide

Hardcover book published in Japan on the occasion of German photographer Jochen Lempert’s first solo exhibition in Japan, in 2016.

Jochen Lempert works with the expertise of a trained biologist, the eye of a photographer and the technique of a scientist.

His photography examines the friction between nature and culture, specifically the relationship between humans and animals: how mankind interprets animals anthropomorphically or uses them industrially, and how animals conquer new niches within urban spaces, unnoticed by their human neighbours.

In his earlier works he collected, archived and arranged the motifs in large groups, stimulating comparative viewing and throwing open multiple associative references.

Lempert’s latest groups of work focus more on formations, patterns, structures, conveying the aleatory potency of flocks of birds, water structures and cloud formations.

Jochen Lempert
Composition



Over the past two decades, Jochen Lempert has drawn from his personal archive of hundreds of images to create photographic installations that immerse the viewer in a field of poetic visual associations.
Lempert’s images of the natural world – ocean waves, plants, birds, insects, reptiles, seashells, and taxidermied specimens from natural history museums – are made through a variety of experimental and traditional processes that, to a certain extent, mimic the inherent order and randomness of the natural world itself.
While some of his photographs are taken with a 35mm camera from scientific research vessels in the North Sea or in the urban environment of his hometown of Hamburg, Germany, many are made through camera-less processes. He creates photograms by lying natural specimens directly on photographic paper.
Foliograms, such as his Transmission series (2009), are made by placing leaves directly into the darkroom enlarger and allowing light to pass through them onto the photo paper. Lempert also prints his photographs using non-traditional techniques. Hand-printed on heavy photographic paper, they are not pressed and presented unframed – this enhances the viewer’s sense of the paper as an object with the tactile quality of a charcoal drawing.

Published retrospectively after Lempert’s major survey exhibition at Midway Contemporary Art, Minneapolis, 3 February – 31 March 2012.

The Registry of Promise
Chris Sharp (Ed.)


Over the course of a year, The Registry of Promise consisted of four interrelated exhibitions, which are represented as chapters in this book. In these chapters, Chris Sharp reflects on our increasingly fraught relationship with what the future may or may not hold, and the work engages with and plays upon the various readings and mutability of promise, along with the inevitability of what may come, whether positive or negative. Such polyvalence is particularly topical, as we have shifted from the anthropocentric promise of modernity to a negative faith in the post-human. Richly illustrated with works and installation views, and an archive of previously published articles by Chris Sharp.
With: Becky Beasley, Patrick Bernatchez, Juliette Blightman, Peter Buggenhout, Nina Canell, Michael Dean, Alexander Gutke, Jochen Lempert, Jean-Luc Moulène, Marlie Mul, Matt Mullican, Rosalind Nashashibi, Antoine Nessi, Jean-Marie Perdrix, Reto Pulfer, Mandla Reuter, Hans Schabus, Lucy Skaer, Michael E. Smith, Carlo Gabriele Tribbioli, Francisco Tropa, Andy Warhol and Anicka Yi.

Texts in English and French.
