This exhibition explores the development of Teller’s work over the last two decades and its ability to change the perception of stereotypical ideas of beauty and aesthetics within present-time. The exhibition culminates in the upstairs gallery where a new body of work, shown for the first time, creates a visual narrative of a modern fairy tale; a portrait of a man born in London, a boy who became a king.
Juergen Teller lives and works in London, England. Major solo presentations include the forthcoming Enjoy Your Life!, Fotomuseum Winterthur, Winterthur, (travelled from Bundeskunsthalle, Bonn, 2016, Galerie Rudolfinum, Prague, 2016 and Martin-Gropius-Bau, Berlin, 2017); Woo!at the Institute of Contemporary Art, London, 2013; Texte und Bilderat the Brukenthal Museum, Sibiu, 2011 (travelled from the Moscow House of Photography, Russia); Touch Me, Le Consortium, Dijon, 2010 (travelled to Daelim Contemporary Art Museum, Seoul, 2011); Do You Know What I Mean, Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain, Paris, 2005.
