Sehen, verweilen, deuten - Seeing, lingering, interpreting

Maybe it’s a good thing that the modern viewer’s eye is forced to jump back and forth on the screen so often, because otherwise it would drown in the permanent optical flood. Of course, that would be more of a drowning in the shallow, in the visually foamy, which replaces depth with uniform and digitally sugar-coated aesthetics. Michael Nguyen’s pictures are different: With his photographs, he manages to give the eyes a reason to linger, “by creating clarity in vision and a challenge in interpretation through reduction and emphasis,” as Rainer Funke, professor of design theory, puts it at the FH Potsdam, writes in his eulogy about the Gautinger photographer.

مايكل نجوين – وضوح الرؤية وخيال التفسير

ArchUp Architectural Journal, and the largest architectural newspaper in Arabic reports on Michael Nguyen's exhibition at the Max Planck Institute

يحب Nguyen اللعب بإغواء الأشكال الهندسية ، والعادي ، والمتماثل. نجد هذا في كل مكان كدليل على القوة البناءة للتصميم الموجه نحو المثالية. وبالتالي ، يُفترض الكمال ، كما هو الحال أيضًا مع الضوء المنسق بشكل مثير للإعجاب وتدرجات الألوان أو قوام السطح. في الوقت نفسه ، يتم وضع المشاهد في وضع مثالي يمكن أن ينطلق منه الاهتمام بما يتم تصويره.من ناحية أخرى ، يتم تحفيزنا للسماح لخيالنا بالتجول بناءً على ما يظهر. في الأسلوب نجد مناسبات عديدة للربط بين المزاج والشوق. هذا هو الحال بشكل خاص عندما يُرى الناس في مظهرهم منفصلين عن الحركة. يلعب التناقض مع النظرة غير العادية لمحيطهم دورًا خاصًا. كل من يتورط في صور مايكل نجوين سيختبر في أي حال إثراء: الخاص في العرضي.

Michael Nguyen – Clarity of Seeing, Fantasy of Interpretation

Michael Nguyen is a flâneur. On foot, he seeks the encounter worth seeing in detail. His photographs show us buildings, streets, staircases, vehicles, and people of the kind that we might encounter at any time by chance in our everyday lives. The pictures confront us with single views of elements, focus their colors and forms in detail, and leave aside the manifold abundance of the surrounding. In this way, the images unfold a power of the particular: Something like this, but exactly how we haven't seen things before.

Interview by Miriam Pietrangeli-Ankermann

Auszug:
Welche Motive fesseln Sie?
Es sind vier Motiv-Bereiche, die mich fesseln und begeistern. Fassaden von Bauwerken, weil Gebäude für mich keine statischen Objekte mit vier Wänden und einem Dach sind. Sie sind Skulpturen. Die Gestaltung aus Ziegeln, Glas, Holz oder anderen Materialien, die Architekten nutzen, sind ihre „Kleider“, die unsere Städte und urbanen Räume schöner und lebendiger machen. Dann fesseln mich Lichtspiele und Reflexionen. Ich fange magische Stimmungen ein. Reflektierende Oberflächen regen zum Nachdenken an. Der Blick in ein Spiegelbild eröffnet neue Perspektiven, der Betrachter ist eingeladen, ganz genau hinzusehen. Ebenso urbane Elemente und Details, bei denen ich mich bei meiner Ausarbeitung auf das Geometrische, das Symmetrische und die Formen und Farben im Detail konzentriere. Die mannigfaltige Umgebung lasse ich beiseite. Und ich liebe Schatten. Sie sind wie Yin und Yang, Unordnung und Ordnung, Feuer und Wasser. Das Wechselspiel zwischen diesen Elementen macht alles interessant. Das Licht wirft den Schatten… der Schatten zaubert.

Klarheit des Sehens, Fantasie der Deutung

Künstlerische Fotografie bewegt sich heute ganz anders als noch vor wenigen Jahrzehnten als visuelle Kraft und kommunikative Intervention inmitten einer überbordenden Schwemme an Bildern, deren Herstellung, Verwaltung und Weitergabe längst aus dem Ruder gewissenhafter Steuerung gelaufen ist. Nach Film, Fernsehen und Computer hat uns vor allem das Smartphone in ein neues Bild-Zeitalter katapultiert. Oftmals steht die Herausforderung, den Augen zwischen ihren unsteten Sprüngen von Bild zu Bild einen Anlass zum Verweilen zu bieten. Einen solchen Anlass zu erzeugen, gelingt Michael Nguyen mit seinen Fotografien ganz vorzüglich, indem er durch Reduktion und Pointierung Klarheit im Sehen und Herausforderung in der Deutung schafft.

Photography meets Science – Exhibition of Michael Nguyen’s Photographs at the Max Planck Institute in Munich

Nguyen likes to play with the seduction of the geometric, the regular, and the symmetrical. We find this everywhere as a testimony to the constructive power of a design oriented towards the ideal. Perfection is thus assumed, as is also the case with the impressively harmonized light and color gradients or surface textures. At the same time, the viewer is placed in an ideal position from which interest in what is depicted can unfold.

The power of design and the contradictions between art and lifeMichael Nguyen photographs Munich's most colorful shopping center facade 

The MIRA Shopping Center opened in 2008 in the Munich district Nordhaide. The West, North, and northern half of the Eastern facades, was made of colored lacquered metal panels which were placed on the walls to form prisms. Since the sides of the prisms have different colors, the façade appears from the southwest and northwest in different colors. In between, a gradual transition takes place, so that the building changes dynamically as one passes by. In addition to the colored panels, the façade also contains panels made of polished aluminum, which reflect the sky and surrounding buildings. The façade construction was awarded with the “DGNB Gold Award for sustainable buildings” in 2009. The shopping centre was planned by Chapman Taylor. The responsible project architect there was Ruprecht Melder. Léon-Wohlhage-Wernik Architekten was responsible for the façade design.

What is outside is no longer outside. Trees, forests, mountains, rivers, lakes. Michael Nguyen has transformed these elements in his artworks into feelings, fantasies and dreams. They become part of our inner nature, part of the human soul. His works does not reflect reality but are the interpretation of a moment. In his art photography, the work is often created by making changes to the original photograph in image editing programs, where the creativity of the artist knows no bounds.
In my Photographic Paintings from my series "Nature is within us"  I work out a distinctive aesthetic effect of my pictures. Most of the motifs are outside, in daylight. Among my most popular motifs here are landscapes, riversides, forests. In the seasons autumn and spring I find the most popular moods for me. Characteristic for my pictures of this portfolio are blurred, blurred contours, sometimes scattered light and often the renunciation of the reproduction of details, similar in style to a painting.
This pictures taken in and around Gauting and in the Starnberg district - Gauting is a city in the Upper Bavarian administrative district of Starnberg and lies southwest of Munich on the river Würm.

Die Macht des Designs und die Widersprüche zwischen Kunst und Leben

…Die Strenge der Komposition im Einzelnen wird zum Thema, aus der Nähe treten aber auch Brechungen und Störungen hervor. Zwei gerahmte, quadratische blaue Schließfächer etwa, ihren Maßen nach auf blauem Grund wohl platziert mit nicht blau gefärbten metallischen Beschlägen – der Versuch, sie zu verstecken ist gescheitert. Das wunderbare Streifenmuster wird auf diese Weise gestört, weniger perfekt und auch etwas lebensnäher. Als Fotograf ist Michael Nguyen so konsequent, wie es die abgebildeten Fassaden sein wollen aber im Sturm des Lebens und der Entropie nicht sein können. …

Who says, streets are our most social lively spaces? Maybe. But they are also places of broken dreams, of empty selves, of collective solitude.Taken in the border triangle of Germany, France, Switzerland, the photographs of Michael Nguyen show gloomy cityscapes, cold and bleak: Empty benches on the sidewalks, a tired bicycle, walls covered with barbed wire. Sometimes, there are people sitting by, walking down, which doesn't make the streets livelier. The only sign of hope is children, who are pursuing their own activities without knowing what lies ahead in the future.
