Fuck it, Photography!
On the occasion of photo+, SETAREH X is pleased to present the first solo exhibition with Peter Miller. In his conceptual and playful approach, Peter Miller explores the conditions and possibilities of photography.
The objects, installations and wall pieces shown for the first time in the exhibition reflect, in a pointed and humorous way, the manifestations of the medium, its physical-chemical foundations, the analogue and digital processes connected with it, as well as its imaging function and meaningfulness.
The two works Songs of the Sky I & II consist of torn color photographs of cloud formations and suggest landscapes, mountains, or wave formations in an almost impressionistic manner.

SETAREH X is pleased to present the solo exhibition by Peter Miller under the title Fuck it, Photography!
The work HiQHaiku, installed in a corner of the gallery space like a paravent, consists of five silhouettes cut out of canvas fabric, on which poems in the verse meter of Japanese haikus are fixed with the help of cyanotype1. The content of these verses links the desire to fix light with the human need for vitamin D to feel happy – making the search for happiness seem like a photographic problem in a metaphorical sense. The fact that the artist exposed the text of his “figures of thought” on a tanning bed, underscores his uncompromising search for new forms and possibilities of photography.
