NOIR EST BLANC Goethe Institute Bordeaux 2020
The exhibition “Black is White” presents figures and forms from various scenes. The selection curated by Luise Holke and the artist herself, invites the visitor to discover the art of comment through photography and Schmeken’s particular view. Precise observations, pictures meant to grow into historical monuments over time: from the fall of the Berlin wall via all but abstract athletic bodies in movement to an impressive portrait of Greta Thunberg behind a fence that seems to keep her and her generation from taking over. Schmekens subjective seizure of the moment sharpens the viewer’s perception in an ever moving, fleeting world.
