Places, strange and quiet

20. September - 23. November 2014

In 2014, Kunstforeningen GL STRAND presents the exhibition Places, strange and quiet by the film director and photographer Wim Wenders (born 1945). The exhibition includes more than 20 of the artist’s large-format photographs produced between 1983 and today.

With the exhibition at GL STRAND, Places, strange and quiet concludes
its tour of a number of leading exhibition spaces and museums across the world.

With Places, strange and quiet, Wenders has gathered a fascinating and unusual series of his large-format photographs, which together represent the world-wide scope of Wender’s photographic works; pictures exhibited include motifs from countries such as Italy, Japan, Germany as well as Australia, Armenia and America. With almost iconic images of façades and buildings – known as well as unknown – and panoramic depictions of cities and landscapes, this exhibition give its viewers insight into the great variety of Wender’s photographic oeuvre. His photographs are usually taken on research trips, at film sets or on trips to various film festivals. Together these photographs run as an autonomous track in his artistic practice showing his ability to call attention to and underline the overlooked, the spectacular and the unsaid.

The exhibition is created in collaboration with Wenders Images, Berlin.
