Jeff Wall at Guggenheim Berlin

The Guggenheim Berlin, I am always slightly surprised at how tiny the floor space is in this gallery. The gallery shop is nearly the same size as the exhibition space.

Jeff Wall is most recognized for his large scale photos mounted on light boxes. Thematics dealing with a cinematographic stolen moment of subtle chaos or uncomfortable intimate situations which displaces the viewer amongst the scene.

These black and white works by Jeff Wall at the Guggenheim, the solitude of seemingly Vancouver suburbs of Wall’s youth. Subltly reflective, remaining voyeur of a scenario of which the narrative is not so ledgable. Young boy sitting in a field around an overturned shopping cart, men waiting on a street corner where the landscape of the photo dwarfs their bodies.
