Interview: Heinz-Peter Schepp

Luca Curci talks with Heinz-Peter Schepp during THE BODY LANGUAGE 2019 at THE ROOM Contemporary Art Space.

DEVELOPMENT
It all started quite innocently, with a Nikon FE2. That was back in 1984. Since then it’s become an obsession, an addiction. And I’ve become a willing addict. My addiction involves searching constantly for unique moments, one-of-a-kind images. Always inspired by street photography and the desire to perhaps – one day – create pictures worthy of comparison with those of Gyula Halász (Brassaï).

PROJECTS AND EXHIBITIONS
Sicily Affairs II (Solo-Exhibition during 10th KalkKunst, Cologne, Germany 2014) — Loving East Cuba (Solo-Exhibition at the Cuban Culture Day, Berlin, Germany 2014) — Cuba meets Germany „coneXiones“ (Solo-Exhibition, Santiago de Cuba, Cuba 2015) — Loving Kenitra (Solo-Exhibition Townhall Kenitra, Morocco 2015) — Cuba meets Germany „enCuentro“ (Solo-Exhibition, Santiago de Cuba, Cuba 2016) — KM-Stein 686 (Solo-Exhibition, Cologne, Germany 2016) – ITSLIQUID Labyrinth (Group-Exhibition Palazzo Ca’ Zanardi, Venice, Italy 2018)

Luca Curci – Which subject are you working on?
Heinz-Peter Schepp – At the moment I am working intensively on a photo interpretation of the “Last Supper”. In this project I would like to let two things meet. Women as actors of the apostles to show that society is changing. And the Lord’s Supper as a symbol for food and consumption and its waste products, in focus our plastic garbage. I would like to present the result in a solo exhibition in November 2019 in Palermo, Sicily.

LC – What’s your background? What is the experience that has influenced your work the most?
HPS – What’s my background? A good question. After more than 30 years of photography I want to break out now and live out my head births. In color contrast and image I want to submit to photography. Driven by the desire to create something beautiful.

LC – Do visitors’ suggestions enrich yourself and your art?
HPS – Yes, without feedback, photography for me is like a primed canvas: A starting point out of nowhere. I love to create exhibitions and enter into dialogue with visitors. That fulfills me more than communication in the social media.

LC – Are your artworks focused on a specific theme?
HPS – Photography on the street is an essential element of my art. Otherwise, I am a restless photographer looking for the crazy motif that is worth capturing with the camera.

LC – Which art themes do you pursue? What is your preferred subject, if there is any?
HPS – Pop Art is a source of inspiration for me. In it my crazy ideas find the best hold.

LC – Do you agree with our vision of art and what do you think about the theme of the festival?
HPS – Yes very much, the modern and free form of bringing together international artists in a cheeky and fresh form of presentation connected with the historical environment is something very special; something unique.

LC – Did you enjoy cooperating with us?
HPS – Working with you has been an enrichment for me and I will remember the pleasant communication and the precise design of the project. Not least because you allowed me to visited Venice once more.
