Stephen Fenton / Marc Behrens FOTO- UND VIDEOARBEITEN, Galerie Station im Mousonturm, Waldschmidtstr. 4, Frankfurt a. M. Opening Wed May 7, 20:00 (with DJ Zipo/Auf Abwegen). Curated by W.E. Baumann.
The two artists – whose visual subjects feature forest structures, antennas for mobile communication, cloud and light phenomena as well as condensation trails – know each other via email since 1999 by the occasion of a purchase of a CD. 2001 Fenton published a CD album by Behrens on his label e d i t i o n . . . During the examination of the cover design Fenton reacted enthusiastically, because it stroke him immediately that Behrens’ photographs were similar to his own ones. Whereupon Behrens proposed to make an exhibition together somewhere sometime. In Chicago 2002 they missed each other by several days, because Fenton was on his way to Tokyo, and Behrens couldn’t return earlier from Valencia. It’s great that they can now meet in Frankfurt.
