The gallery Gagosian is pleased to present a special installation of new and earlier works by Andreas Gursky at the Gstaad-Saanen airport.

Gursky’s large-scale photographs evoke the complexity of global connectedness via the enormous amounts of information that flow through his images like data streams: the chaos of contemporary life competing with the classical desire for order.
From threats to the environment to the world’s exploding population and cities, Gursky portrays the extremes of the present moment with a cool objective eye.
His photographs capture built and natural environments on a grand scale, with individual or granular elements whirling into totalities. Though similar in their sweep and scope to early nineteenth-century landscape paintings, his images retain the hard precision of digital photography.

Gursky’s works from the early 1990s depict factories, stock exchanges, airports, golf courses, highways, and buildings, often from aerial viewpoints that reveal the patterns of crowds and infrastructure.
In 1996 he moved away from this perspective in favor of deadpan frontal views, as in Gucci (1996/2016), which displays bags and shoes arranged on brightly lit shelves—a minimalist altar of luxury fashion.

The exhibition is open from Monday to Sunday 3 – 7 pm or by appointment.
