  • Catalogue Essay

    This intricate sandscape from Andreas Gefeller’s Supervisions series (2002-13) is a meticulously and seamlessly constructed digital assemblage. Carrying his tripod-affixed, downward-facing camera in front of him, Gefeller photographed step by step across the sandy surface, accumulating approximately 100 individual shots, which were later stitched together to create a richly detailed image. ‘I’m starting to survey the ground,’ notes Gefeller, ‘I as a satellite and the ground beneath me as the alien surface of the planet Mars, except that instead of being hundreds of kilometres above ground, it’s only two metres.’ What appears at first to be an abstract composition reminiscent of a lunar landscape uncovers, on closer investigation, the mesmerising details of individual footprints, shoe logos and small pieces of debris found on the sand. Dusseldorf-based Gefeller has exhibited widely and his work resides in such prominent institutions as the National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa; the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, Kansas City; and the Norton Museum of Art, West Palm Beach.
