The Erotic Outsider

Galerie Susanne Zander / Delmes & Zander

Paris Photo 2014
13 - 16 November 2014  

When Morton Bartlett (1909 - 1992) shoots the perfectly staged lifelike dolls he had been making since the 1930s, he captures a mystifying eroticism that becomes alive on photographic paper. Miroslav Tichy's (1926 - 2011) blurred, voyeuristic snapshots bring him closer to his lifetime fascination: woman, his eternal object of desire. In some magical corner of Eugene Von Bruenchenhein's (1910 – 1983) private domesticity he obsessively turns his beloved wife Marie from exotic princess to tinseltown temptress. In “Margret”, Günter K. renders a meticulous documentation with hundreds of notes and photographs of his love affair with his secretary in the late 1960s, thrusting the viewer defenselessly into voyeurism. The anonymous “Type 42” archive is a frantic accumulation of close ups taken of actresses captured from the TV screen in the 60s and 70s and a private encyclopedia of voyeuristic desire. 

Galerie Susanne Zander's exhibition project is centered around five positions in outsider photography which explore notions of voyeurism and the object of sexual yearning as a projection “turned to life” through the medium of photography. In their singular portrayal of private eroticism, all five oeuvres lure the spectator into the role of a voyeur.

We are delighted to welcome you next week
