Simone Nieweg - Early Garden sheds
From September 7 to December 22, 2017, Galerie m Bochum is showing a series of early photographs by Simone Nieweg
(b. 1962). Gardens, fields, forests, and meadows have been favorite motifs of the artist's since 1986. Her third solo exhibition at Galerie m now features fourteen photographs made between 1986 and 2004 in which Nieweg focuses her lens on garden huts, sheds, and other constructions. She seeks out her motifs on long forays and treks through gardens and fields, often on her home ground in the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia. The photos on view in Early Garden Sheds" were produced near Düsseldorf but also in other parts of Germany, including Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania and Saarland.
