    Hans Hemmert:
    The Invisible Materiality Of Air

    In the following series, Home-Frame II, composed of 21 colour photographs, the yellow latex membrane is an outer form that contains “air” and “artist” in its interior. The artist’s relationship with the external is mediated by the great yellow ball in which he is enclosed. His are everyday actions: going up a staircase, tugging on a rope, sitting on a Vespa, embracing his daughter Julie... Despite the simplicity of the actions, his second skin makes him clumsy and slow: each movement, each attempt to hold on to an object is destined to failure, to fall. Its respective titles (“latex-air-artist- fitting to...”) prefigure with ironic resignation the inevitable disaster.

    The photographic series Home-Frame II sets the sculptural work in a succession of brief, subtly comic scenes, in relentlessly absurd fragments where the factuality of the image eludes any effect of rhetoric. It is perhaps this vein of refined and conceptual humour, and the precision and immediacy of his plastic language, the drawbridge that Hans Hemmert throws to the Anglo-Saxon tradition of modern sculpture, and which relates him to artists like Tony Cragg, Julian Opie and Mona Hatoum and the denominated “freeze generation”.
