gb agency is delighted to announce its guest performance at Sfeir-Semler Gallery in Hamburg, with a show titled The Invisible Image featuring works by Mac Adams and Dove Allouche.

The New York based artist Mac Adams (born in 1943) explores the narrative potential of photography and installation, composing and constructing mysterious scenes on the border of social norms. Potential homicides, victims and could-be assassins populate his compositions, held together by a series of clues, carefully and methodically left by the artist. The story and its fragmented reading is the essential element in the work of Mac Adams, a leading figure in the narrative photography movement of the 1970s.

Dove Allouche's (born in 1972) interest lies in photography, drawing, and printmaking. He employs scientific processes to bring to light otherwise invisible phenomena. In the works on view the French artist explores microorganisms, spores that predate man as well as diverse chemical processes which he photographs and prints in different techniques. Though formally abstract, these works result from his empirical investigation into nature, translating patterns and forms into a reflection on photography as a means to discover the world.
