Chien-Chi Chang’s Jet Lag

Jet Lag cover

 

The °CLAIR Gallery is proud to announce that Chien-Chi Chang’s glorious series of photographs Jet Lag will be released in September 2015 by the German publisher Hatje Cantz.

“Wanderlust becomes rootlessness,” notes the publisher. “For those who travel a lot, the world becomes a steel-and-concrete construct of interchangeable flight crews, hotel rooms, and check-in counters … In these photographs, reality is less a touchstone than a distraction: the crucial space is ‘between’.”

Jet Lag can be pre-ordered through the Hatje Cantz website.

More about Chien-Chi Chang on the gallery’s artist page.

On the Move

Due to its critical success, the On the Move exhibition at the VDA headquarters in Berlin has been extended until 26 June 2016.

On the Move explores movement as captured by the most acclaimed photographers of the past century. It features both legendary photographers such as Lee Miller, Jacques Henri Lartigue, Philippe Halsman, and Alvin Langdon Coburn, and the brightest stars of contemporary photography such as Oliver Mark, Gundula Friese, Chien-Chi Chang, and Petr Lovigin.

The exhibition includes more than 100 photographs from 13 photographers. The work spans more than a century, from the earliest photographs by Alvin Langdon Coburn (1882-1966) to an original photo series created for the exhibition by Russian photographer Petr Lovigin (b. 1981).

On the Move is being hosted by the Association of the German Automotive Industry (Verband der Automobilindustrie) at Behrenstrasse 35, 10117, Berlin. A limited-edition, hand-bound catalogue of the exhibition’s photography has been published by the °CLAIR Gallery on behalf of the Association of the German Automotive Industry.
