Saul Fletcher

22 MAY – 27 JUNE 2009

“In his photographs Saul Fletcher visualizes human
existence in all its temporal dimensions and physical fragility.
The scenes he depicts achieve a concentrated intimacy:
In order to take in every detail, the viewer is compelled
to get as close as possible to the work. His careful still lifes
draw attention to details; the discarded moments of the
everyday become the focus, and in this way are imbued
with new or altered meaning.”
Extract from catalogue for the 4th Berlin Biennial (2006)

"These images represent a succession of moments which are precisely staged without ever seeming forced or contrived. They not only constitute a vague autobiography but also record isolated fragments from life: a birdcage, glass lantern, floral curtains - scenes and subjects imbued with Fletcherʼs haunting private mythology."
