Stainless Steel, Xiamen
Korfmann's large format photographs are made up of separate, sequential incidents, re-composed in a single image. The artist's highly detailed photographs are framed in white behind museum glass for optimal clarity; frames measure 0.5 inches wide and 2 inches deep.
This image is from the series Back Stages, which documents the otherwise unseen world of manufacturing that is essential in the making of artworks and culturally important objects. Working alongside sculptor Jens Pfeifer, Korfmann captures busy production grounds, dye factories, welding workshops, and installation sites. By foregrounding these facilities, she highlights the processes involved in the creation of artwork, from the manufacturing of the materials to the final displayed object. Read more here.
