Tango Metropolis

Tango Metropolis 2003 - 2014

“Kellner's kaleidoscopic, fairy-tale buildings thus inject new life into timeworn tourist shots in an aesthetically arresting and technical conscious way.” Bangsund-Pedersen, Ditte Maria Tango Metropolis. Thomas Kellner. Cegielska, Beate, 2005, Galleri Image Aarhus, Denmark.

In his project Tango Metropolis Thomas Kellner shows the new wonders of the world. In distinction to other projects in Tango Metropolis Kellner captures the buildings in large-size works: the photographs are bigger, the resolution is higher and there are more facets and details than before. With newly discovered energy this project manages to shake the very foundations of the static monuments, moving beyond the evident beauty of the images themselves. Similar to his other works the pictures in Tango Metropolis are showing architecture in a different light. The pictures tell a new story about popular tourist destinations, using a new visual language and drawing attention to details never seen before. Using his unique technique Thomas Kellner manages to create an image of a building, in which the massive stone walls are cut into pieces and perspectives are disorganized. In this way he succeeds in deconstructing and reconstructing the object at once and the same time. This method provides the buildings with liveliness, movability, spirit and dynamics.

Thomas Kellner is a visual artist living in Siegen. His work is located somewhere between the deconstructionism, cubism and montage. Thomas Kellner has shown his work in solo and group exhibitions. Many of his pictures are included in different collections.
