Jürgen Klauke was one of the first artists to use photographic support as a tool of artistic research. He has specifically emphasized gender difference, throwing into relief the issue of identity, and using his body as an integral means of expression. His portraits are not “simply” self-portraits but representations of the “other,” as artist and beholder suddenly experience a sense of self-understanding and self-awareness.
Suzanne Tarasieve opened her first space in Paris in 2003. She now runs two exhibition spaces, one in Le Marais, and another in Belleville. The gallery supports young and international contemporary artists (Recycle Group, Julien Salaud, Jean Bedez), with an emphasis on the German neo-expressionist scene (A.R. Penck, Jörg Immendorff, Markus Lüpertz), renowned photographers (Jürgen Klauke, Boris Mikhaïlov, Juergen Teller) and young figurative painters (Romain Bernini, Anna Tuori).
