Anna Lehmann-Brauns: sun in an empty room ; [anlässlich der Ausstellung "Anna Lehmann-Brauns - Sun in an Empty Room", Kommunale Galerie, Berlin, 25.11.-21.12.2007]
A room full of empty chairs facing a monumental window bank. A humble futon mattress lying naked on the floor. A curtained stage. With interiors as her subject, photographer Anna Lehmann-Brauns--born in 1967 in Berlin, and a former student at the famed Leipzig art academy--explores the concept of the room as a site of personal memory. Sometimes she works with small models that she constructs herself, while other times she photographs pre-existing locations. In either case, her spaces are devoid of human presence--all the better to manipulate light and achieve her trademark vivid color. Eerily quiet, Lehmann-Brauns' spaces are often decrepit, morbid sites that achieve a certain absent splendor. This volume provides a concise insight into the work of a photographer whose work has already received much critical acclaim.
