Axel Vervoordt Gallery is pleased to present the first solo exhibition “FACADES” of German artist Markus Brunetti in Hong Kong. The exhibition will explore the subject of reality /idealistic reality through digitally assembled images of church façades, which become a hybrid of virtual and extremely true-to-life realities.

Since 2005, Markus Brunetti and his partner Betty Schöner have been hard at work making photographic images of the façades of cathedrals, churches and cloisters all over Europe. After much research and some preliminary photographic studies, a façade is selected. Over a few weeks, or even years, it is then documented part-by-part, photographing no more than a few square meters with each exposure. The separate elements are then assembled digitally into a coherent whole, a long process that requires an intimacy and understanding rivalled only by the long-forgotten craftsmen who constructed and decorated the buildings in the first place. Through quantity, he achieves an entirely new quality.
