Exhibition Spotlight: Joachim Seinfeld's Modern Nostalgia In Istanbul

09/28/2010 03:08 am ET | Updated May 25, 2011

ABOUT JOACHIM SEINFELD:Joachim Seinfeld works with painting, gelatin prints, and photography - an impressive feat on its own. Born in Paris, educated in Florence, and exhibited throughout Germany, its only a matter of time before his name is passed from gallerist to gallerist in the US. He's presenting this new body of work (seen below) at Canakkale Biennial and the Istanbul Art Fair this year.

The paintings used in these works originate from walls of demolished or readjusted buildings. With the aid of a special procedure they are removed from the walls and fixed to a new support, whereby a silver gelatine photograph is developed upon them. The photographs from this series date from the time of the making of the houses.
