Dear Clark, 2011, Sara-Lena Maierhofer

Sara-Lena Maierhofer takes on the role of a detective to profile the extraordinary life of Clark Rockefeller, a.k.a. Christian Karl Gerhartsreiter, and to construct the story of his work. In “Dear Clark,” a work that is part fiction and part documentary, she examines from a distance this con-man who took delight in moving among his different identities. The photographs, collages, found documents, and videos retrace her investigation, the goal of which was to capture the identity of someone who is constantly changing.


Sara-Lena Maierhofer (1982, Freudenstadt, DE) est une artiste allemande qui vit et travaille à Berlin. Diplômée de la Haute Ecole de Bielefeld en photographie en 2011, elle a déjà exposé sa série « Dear Clark, » au FOAM Photography Museum d’Amsterdam en 2011 et au C. Rockefeller Center for the Arts à Dresde en 2014.
