DESCRIPTION

Hasted Kraeutler is pleased to announce Berlin, new work by Erwin Olaf. Berlin is a new series of photographs by Erwin Olaf which are set in the capital of Germany. The series, composed of scenes and portraits, allude to a painful past in a photographed present, while self-portraits of Olaf reflect an aging future. 

Ewin Olaf's Keyhole series will als obe on view, which alludes to the strong emotions of shame and humiliation. The photographs are accompanied by an installation where the viewer can look through the heyholes of two doors, and depending which view they choose, experiences a sentiment of either happiness or shame. The Keyhole exhibition was honored as one of the highlights during Arco Madrid 2012.
