ADDICTED2CLICK / Soloshow at Barlach Halle K, Hamburg - Germany
ADDICTED2CLICK is a photographic artistic discourse with my everyday life, perception of it, the moment's volatility, and my urge to capture moments and details photographically.

My online installation www.addicted2click.com takes motifs from an archive plays them randomly and unstoppably, like life itself, at a rate of one frame per second via a slideshow and creates a film-like sequence in which the combination of motifs is left to an algorithm. I do not control the resulting visual collage. Currently, the work shows about 5500 motifs from 2020/2021, is expanded daily, and, besides the future, will feature motifs soon from 2014-2019.

From 27.02.2021 to 07.03.2021, I showed an offline installation in Hamburg's Barlach Halle K, which was dedicated to this online installation and aims to make the essence of the work clear to the viewer. For this purpose, I had all motifs that were online at the time printed in the formats 20x30cm and 30x22.5cm and used them in the Barlach Halle K premises.

I created two videos in collaboration with Stefan Pohl for this installation, which depict it and for which Glatz was able to win over the musician Nils Frahm as a supporter with his track "Black Notes" from his album EMPTY.

SHOW 2020 / FSK18 groupshow at Evelyn Drewes Gallery, Hamburg - Germany
SHOW is a portrait of Hamburg´s redlight-scene I created in 2010 in the context of a two-men show at Vicious Gallery in Hamburg.

When I defined my work as portraits of subcultures, while the other artist, Stefan Strumbel, explained his work as intercourse with the German term “Heimat”. The artists learned from locals that the redlight district with its scene had a local “Heimat” understanding, leading to this series and the exhibition´s concept.

I was following for a few weeks, primarily working girls in their daily lives, and within the process, I offered these ladies to shoot as well images they could use to communicate in exchange for their access and time.
The shown pieces are based on a series I created for one of the ladies and reinterpreted in 2020 for this exhibition. The show´s subject was 22 artist positions and their interpretation of eroticism, some crossing the border to pornography, in photography.

The series was inspired by the classic development process in analog photography, working with contact prints and test strips. I, formally, changed the motives to result in abstraction and images with strongly reduced explicitness. As well these pieces are a play with contrast in size and focus. While the triptychs have a petite size – the sensor size – and the others are heavy crops blown up big.

ACCPETION / The solo-show that never happened, Heidelberg - Germany
"No Hay Una Exposición! It is an illusion!" - With a heavy heart, I present you three visualizations of my solo show ACCEPTION, which should have had it's opening at the new PX-Factory in Heidelberg - Germany on the 16th of April 2020 and which we worked for months on. Unfortunately, it was canceled due to a delay in the development of the place, which today, six weeks later, feels kind of a relief since it wouldn't have taken place anyway. You all stay healthy! @ Heidelberg, Germany

The exhibition would be have been part of the OFF//FOTO festival - https://www.off-foto.info

THE NEW BLACK / IMPOSSIBLE WARDROBE book by Tilda Swinton and Olivier Saillard
In the context of my project, THE NEW BLACK, I followed my dear friend Tilda Swinton in Paris in September 2012. She was the main character in Olivier Sailard´s performance, IMPOSSIBLE WARDROBE, which took place at Palais Tokyo.
The performance turned out to be so tremendous and well-received that Olivier and Tilda decided to do further performances together.
Olivier liked my images so much of IMPOSSIBLE WARDROBE, that he asked me to do a book with those. Three years and two further performances later, this beautiful book published by RIZZOLI saw the light of birth.

The books show 89 black/white images of mine, while 175 photos in total. The artist Katerine Jebb, who originally introduced Tilda and Olivier, and the photographer Vincent Lappartient put in their positions color.

SCHWARZWALD / Several days of shooting
Over eastern I travelled with my father for several days throught the Black Forest to create a series of landscape images. This series is as a collaboration piece with my father who will do a series of paintings based on my photographs. This might end up in a nice show, which is great as our family has its roots in the Black Forest. We will see…
