Symmetry is not a human invention. It can be found very frequently within nature – one need only think of petals und leaves, snowflakes, butterflies or starfish. It provides a feeling of harmony and order in the midst of chaos.

With his mysterious, meticulously detailed images Czech photographer Daniel Kreissl lays bare fractal structures in roots, thorn bushes and flowering vines. He takes pictures especially at dusk and these often give the impression of fantastic creatures and unknown landscapes suddenly emerging from the darkness: “I try to capture what is not visible by day and create a unique view of the world.”

Daniel Kreissl was born in 1974 into an artistic family and has been photographing since childhood. In 1994 he started studying photography at the Silesian University in Oprava and began to experiment with light, exposure and non-traditional techniques. He has a primary interest in staged photography, but recently has started to work with symmetrical photography too, where the central motif is mirrored along one or more axis. He exhibits as part of solo and group shows on a regular basis. This is his first solo exhibition in Germany.

On the opening night the artist will introduce his work together with the curator Dr. Eva Čapková. Musical accompaniment in the form of symmetrical compositions will be provided by Václav Salvet (keyboard) and Katerina Stegemann (flute).
