Clemens Habicht


3 April — 3 May 2014

Clemens Habicht set himself the illustrative task of finding 100 faces in 100 original black and white photographs gleaned from flea markets in Vietnam and France.

Each face emerges from a single photo already featuring people with every part of the original image being used in the final construction.

“Drawing these faces into existence is willing myself to look beyond what is already there and seeing the image anew. The construction becomes a way to make this revelation apparent to another, and cutting into something already so fascinating and unique is a serious and irreversible mark upon the original. It reveals the process to a viewer and to me is a leap of faith that it’s going to work.”

100 FACES follows from Clemens’ first solo exhibition at Lamington Drive, 100 KITES, in which birds were collaged onto hand made identical kites, framing the works and giving each bird the real potential of flight.

Clemens’ Online 100 FACES catalogue can be found here.

Please join us for both the opening and artists reception on Thursday, April 3 from 6-9pm at the New Lamington Drive at 101a Sackville Street.
