About Artist:

Amaury Wenger, born in Paris in 1987, specialised in architectural photography with a particular regard to construction sites and abandoned places. Less fascinated by the "official life" of a building, i.e. the time in which a building is actually being used, he is more interested in the "before" and "after". By reflecting traces of the future and past life at any given state of construction, his photography indirectly enters a symbiosis with the architecture. His images invite the observer to walk through scenes of the past and settings of the future.

 

In 2013, the architectural firm AS Architecture Studio commissioned the photographer Amaury Wenger to cover one of its sites, the Maison de Radio France in Paris. The photos were subsequently exhibited at the 55th International Art Exhibition in Venice together with images from Valérie Jouve, Zhenfei Wang, Gordon Matta-Clark and Didier Faustino.

About Artwork:

Issued from the series on the Robert-Koch-Forum.

Located in the Dorotheenstraße in Berlin, the Robert-Koch-Forum was built during the 19th century for the Humboldt University (still the Friedrich-Wilhelms University at the time). Created as part of a complex of four buildings, it was dedicated to the four main research areas of medicine: physiology, pharmacology, physics and chemistry.

 

Here was the animal facility. Because rats are nocturnal animals, the windows have been shut down with blinds or plastic films to allow scientists to invert the day & night cycle.

 

Although the Robert-Koch-Forum has always been an important centre for science and research in Berlin, only a handful of photographers occasionally had the opportunity of taking photographs there. Before the last vestiges of a famous Berlin research centre are wiped away by the forthcoming renovations, the artist aims with this photographic work to preserve the memory of the past.
