In Between Gallery: North Side from the Vertigo Series (2008)

André Lichtenberg

Archive Exhibitions (4 June to 29 June 2018)
The In Between Gallery is a temporary gallery in the Fabrica window showing contemporary photography between Fabrica's main exhibition programme. We show work from two artists a year including an Open Call between December and April. 
The Vertigo Series is a personal project that has been exhibited widely and shortlisted for awards on both sides of the Atlantic. The series capture London's Canary Wharf from the air, exploring the same aesthetic that the artist often used in his childhood while drawing imaginary cities.

About The Artist

André Lichtenberg (b.1964) is a German/Brazilian artist (based in UK) whose work explores the intersection between photography and other art forms such as painting, collage and drawing. In an era of overproduction and consumption of digital images, André is concerned with the creation of memory and translating that into a final physical object - that being small prints (often hand finished with acrylic inks or pencils) or large artworks sublimated into aluminium panels. Lichtenberg’s practice is informed by a highly technical and yet experimental approach to image making. He is interested in the creative process and the subjective and poetical aspects of photography.

His large scale artworks, such as the Within Series, take weeks to be constructed and often includes subtle references to his own childhood memories. Since as a young boy growing up in Brazil, Andre had a strong relationship with architectonical drawings and imaginary visual representation of cities and the land. His work has been exhibited in museums and private galleries worldwide, including the Barbican Centre, London in 1998, Centre Pompidou/IRCAM, Paris in 2015/16 and Fabrica, Brighton in 2018. His artworks are represented in numerous international art collections including the NHS Trust in UK and the prestigious Joseph Cohen Family Collection in NY.
