albertz benda will present Eye by Fiete Stolte (b. 1979, Berlin), an interactive installation that addresses the perception of “the eye as a window to the soul.” Stolte has constructed a photo booth that creates unique portrait, in which the silhouetted outline of the person being photographed appears in his or her pupil.   The passport-sized photo can be acquired by participants for USD 100.  Each work is printed instantly and signed as a unique work by the artist.  Three larger sizes of the ‘portraits’ will be available for purchase through the gallery. 

 

Stolte is a conceptual artist living and working in Berlin. He received an MFA from the Berlin-Weißensee School of Art in 2007. Recent group exhibitions include ...und eine Welt noch, Kunsthaus Hamburg, Germany; more Konzeption Conception now, Museum Morsbroich, Leverkusen, Germany; X Ways to Overcome Space and Time, Museum of Contemporary Art Belgrade, Serbia; and Director’s Choice, Kunsthall Münster, Germany, among others. Stolte has had solo exhibitions at Art Basel (2009) and SOX, Berlin, Germany (2012). In 2015, Stolte had his first major institutional solo exhibition at Kunstverein Gottingen and was the subject of the monograph Hotel Absence, featuring an extended interview between the artist and curator Hans Ulrich Obrist.
