Hackemann is a contemporary artist whose pieces stretch the definition
of fine art black and white photography as language and formally
as flat image on the wall. Photography and sculpture are combined
into “photo based” work or optical sculptures that humorously
address contemporary political and societal issues as well as language
and how it's meaning is constructed. The work most often consists
of an installation of handwritten text on the walls as we well as
hung white boxes, which the viewer peers into through 2 lensed peepholes.
Inside these optical sculptures are stereoscopic black and white
constructed photographs (silver gelatin prints)of a fictional world
with text. By looking through the lenses the viewer sees the images
in 3-D– thus the sculpture acts as both a stereo viewer and
a conceptual container with it’s own inscriptions.
drawings and artist's
books similarly use the two elements of text and image to evoke
third associations that evoke an often humorous, larger meaning.
