“Metamorphosis,” the new series of photographs by Jan Prengel, deals with the limits of matter — how it dissolves, and what different forms and changes of existence are possible. Prengel asks viewers to contemplate existential questions like: Is there a kind of materiality in the universe that cannot be perceived with our senses and the technical ways known to us? Is there a process of separation of body and soul after a living being dies? Where would this energy be after such a process? The series comprises photographed objects —  withered parts of plants that usually appear lifeless. But by changing their shape, they have gained a whole new aesthetic and shine in the warm light like blazing flames. Energy seems to detach from the matter and transmit itself into space.
