Solo Exhibition

»Scenic Utah«

Stephan Bögel

The police report contains the following testimony: “On the way back to the alley, they saw a man stopped between the cemetery and the dog park. He smoked a cigarette and turned away as the car approached.”

In a night in March 1997 the brightest comet for decades Hale Bopp reached its perihelion. It was the night when my father disappeared into the forest. The next day he was found dead. Silence was not only in my family the way suicide is handled.

Scenic Utah uses documentary photography and juxtaposes it with an performative approach. Multi-faceted material is resulting from this trace for evidence and is arranged associatively. The emotional memory of a tragic and not representable event is articulated. Hale Bopp will probably return in 4419.

Stephan Bögel (born 1983 in Münster, Germany) lives and works in Berlin and the Uckermark. In 2016 he graduated at Ostkreuzschule für Fotografie. 
With his work he is winner of the renowned young german Photography Award “gute aussichten”. It was nominated for the Unseen Dummy Book Award and the C/O Berlin Talent Award.
