Kaesbach

Jan Kaesbach (b. 1989, Essen, Germany) creates portraits of tradespeople that resemble contemporary August Sander's photographs. The artist makes videos that appear static, yet upon closer examination, an eye twitches, a flame flickers or a hand tremors. Each “moving portrait” is made by seamlessly looping 3500 still images, which are then played back at standard film speed. The videos last between 3-4 minutes, creating a tension between the sitter and the artist, as each subject attempts to remain still. These are quiet pieces that allow an intimate interaction with the viewer.

All videos are available as 18 x 14" made in edition of 6 + 2 APs. Pieces are $4,000.

Prices are print only unless otherwise indicated.
