Chapter One is a collection of images that communicates Matter’s values as a photographer: carefully crafted shots, the chemistry of each meeting between photographer and subject, his evolving skills and to trust in simplicity, honesty and intuition. Creating an ensemble that speaks for itself.

For Matter, photography ultimately belongs not on a screen but in print. He has enjoyed working for publications like GQ, Vanity Fair USA, L’Uomo Vogue or Das Magazin. This love for a haptic object is also why he decided to produce ‘Chapter One’, so that he and others could review and share his work to date while holding it in their hands – in time, and as his work evolves, chapters two, three etc. will follow.

His book collates some of the key works in the young photographer’s career and documents the emergence of an exciting talent, accompanied by testimonies from some of the key figures he has met so far in his career.

Broken Fonts II is made up of two complementary groups of work: a ‘sammelsorium’ of works on paper, made largely in fineliner pen and larger works on canvas. KKADE’s works combine a variety of key influences: Swiss graphic traditions, art deco ornamentation or contemporary insignia from North America.

This exhibition demonstrates the intervening evolution in KKADE’s craft as he focuses increasingly on the creative potential of complex typography.

Broken Fonts II is the second solo exhibition at The Trace Gallery from Bern-based typographer and founder member of the Schwarzmaler collective Pascal Flühmann, a.k.a. KKADE. The artist had his first ever solo show at the gallery in the summer of 2013; since then he has been increasingly sought after in commercial and urban art contexts.
