Robert Morat Gallery presents the photographic series “One and a half Meter” by Hungarian artist Peter Puklus in cooperation with C/O Berlin.
Peter Puklus, born 1980, studied at Moholy-Nagy University for Arts and Design in Budapest and at the École Supérieur de Création Industrielle in Paris. His work has received wide international attention over the last couple of years and from February to May 2016 C/O Berlin now presents his first major museum show in Germany in the context of a series of exhibitions titled “Thinking about Photography”. While C/O Berlin shows the more concept driven projects “Handbook to the Stars” and “Epic Love Story of a Warrior”, the gallery presents the documentary series “One and a half Meter” from 2012. The title reflects on the immediate radius of proximity, the natural sphere of privacy, one and a half meters, as Puklus documents his immediate surroundings, his domestic environment, his friends and roommates in his Budapest appartment, the people and places of his everyday.
I collect portraits of the people that surround me, I collect memories. I try to document a magical moment of trust; intimacy and photography, in other words, the story of love, friendship and identity.”
