Johannes Langkamp
born 1985, Laer, Germany


Johannes Langkamp carries out ongoing, playful research into video as a medium. Inspired by the everyday, he makes many short fragments of video using simple means, giving them a raw and sketchy style. By exploring perspective and perception, Langkamp discovers outcomes that surprise himself as much as others. His ideas evolve while experimenting with the features and limitations of his tools (cameras, situations, displays), and through this process Langkamp develops rough sketches into installations highlighting the camera's relationship with space. The result is a straightforward observation presenting an unusual take on reality, giving the audience a taste of Langkamp's manner of seeing.
