Press release (in German), list of works and 3 different printed cards from Lutz Bacher exhibition at Galerie Buchholz, Berlin, 2nd May - 7th June 2014

In our Berlin gallery, the American artist Lutz Bacher will present a new suite of 14 photographs entitled “Homer”. This series depicts three off-duty Greek soldiers from the 1970s as they pose in an office, lounge on a couch, and smoke cigarettes on the street at nighttime. Duplications and repetitions of particular photographs in the sequence upend a narrative progression as the cycle of images seems to stutter, shift, and repeat. Evoking with its title both the ancient and the literary, this series uses images from the recent past to animate ideas around the structure of history and myth, the dynamics of male social relations, and the performative qualities of these posing subjects. Alongside these photographs, Lutz Bacher will show “Bison”, a group of 4 large sculptures made of wood, burlap, clay, paper and wire. This herd of grazing ancient beasts recalls the subjects of Paleolithic cave paintings.
