MUNICH.- To start off a cooperation between Henn Gallery, Munich and Beck & Eggeling International Fine Art, Düsseldorf, the German photographer Thomas Wrede (*1963) will show works from his series Manhattan Picture Worlds. The Vernissage will be on Thursday, 4th March, 7 p.m. at Henn Gallery, Augustenstrasse 54 in Munich, with introductory words by Dr. Inka Graeve Ingelmann, Head of Department Photography and New Media, Pinakothek der Moderne, Munich.

Wrede has photographed oversized advertisements in the centre of New York City between the years 2003 and 2008, which he treats as incorporated elements of architecture in his pictures. As in earlier works by Wrede e.g. the Real Landscapes- or Small Worlds series, the artist plays with dimensions as well as different layers of perception and reality. Manhattan Picture Worlds does not use the conquering drive that the huge poster surfaces have on the outside world as a starting point, but rather as a visual terminus. In this way, the radical fusion of the advertising image with real space is viewed from the vantage point of the passerby." (Christoph Schaden, catalogue, p. 109).

Wrede graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts, Münster, in 1992. He has had numerous solo and group exhibitions in Germany and abroad and won prizes such as the German Contemporary Art Award, Volks- und Raiffeisenbanken, Frankfurt, or the Karl-Hofer-Award by the University of Fine Arts, Berlin. He lives in Münster, and works in Europe and the USA.
