The Ideal of Simplicity, Clarity and TimelessnessTo make his photographs, Hannes Norberg (b. 1969, Worms; lives and works in Du¨sseldorf) constructs artificial spaces that integrate elements of painting, drawing, collage, and sculpture. Rather than reproducing selected details of an existing reality, his works make empty space and the play of light and shadow their point of departure. In his most recent pieces, the artist has focused on samples of typography that he collected on his travels and in numerous libraries all over the world and subjected to graphical redaction. Captured in natural light in his studio, his pictures showcase the quiet beauty of writing and paper, while their landscape-like aura gestures toward their place of origin. Designed by the artist himself, the book marks the public première of a selection of twenty-seven new photographs.Hannes Norberg studied fine arts at the Kunstakademie Du¨sseldorf and was an artist-in-residence in Paris, New York, Florence, São Paulo, Xiamen and Seoul.
