Arts Statements presents


Waiting Berlin Keyhole


by Erwin Olaf

About the exhibition

The exhibition features Erwin Olaf’s latest series: Waiting, Berlin, Keyhole. The series Keyhole (2011/2012), centered around Erwin Olaf’s first 3D installation. The Keyhole (already in the collection of the Museum voor Moderne Kunst Arnhem, The Netherlands and the Samsung Children’s Museum, Seoul, Republic of Korea) balances itself on the thin line between intimacy, shame and feelings of guilt. In 2012 Erwin Olaf created the series Berlin, entirely shot on location. Using historically important settings in Berlin, Erwin Olaf shows children and (young) adults in a transcendent relation with each other. In 2015 a new multimedia project named Waiting will be shown for the first time to the Asian public at Art Statements in Hong Kong.

About the artist

Mixing photojournalism with studio photography, Erwin Olaf’s art implicitly visualizes the unspoken, the overlooked, that which typically resists easy documentation. Olaf’s trademark is to address social issues, taboos and bourgeois conventions within the framework of a highly stylized and cunning mode of imagery. By providing scenic and striking design, along with the utmost perfect composition in his typical, immaculate own style, combined with his passion for conceiving flawless scenarios, he vividly captures the essence of contemporary life
