The Galeriothek Leopoldi-Photography
Galeriothek? What’s that?
According to Google, this word didn’t even exist yet – I think it’s about time….
Here not only pictures or paintings are presented like in a gallery – in German “Galerie” , but also books like in a library – in German “Bibliothek” ….. and if you combine the terms, you get my Galeriothek.
I have kept the architectural character the term and divided my gallery Leopoldi-Photography into different rooms:
In the Digital gallery, Leopoldi-style artistic photography is presented. From the entrance area the gallery, one can proceed to Gallery Room I, which houses the performing photography, and Gallery Room II, where the pictorial photography can be found. In the course time, new, additional rooms will be accessible from both spaces.
The digital library also has two rooms: Library Room I – here you can find books, brochures, videos, PDFs and more by Eva Leopoldi. In Library Room II you can find book lists and book information from interesting authors and artists and more.
In short – not only visual stimuli are presented, but also the intellect is not neglected.
Gallery Room I – Representational Photography
Gallery Room II – Image-making Photography
A little bit Theory
A photo is (not) a photo? Application theories, philosophical thoughts and classifications.

Library Room II: Booklists by “XYZs“.

So what is this Leopoldi-Art?
Leopoldi-Art – a nice bilingual play on words… Leopoldi-Art not only stands for my internationality, but also describes the typically “Leopoldian” way in which I tell stories with my work. And I want to tell stories – the ideas and thoughts simply have to come out my head. In doing so, the project work is just as important to me as the technical implementation the ideas.
The Leopoldi-Photography in this gallery shows mainly the field performative photography in addition to staging photography. Since I became aware the fact that I don’t have all the strings in my hand in Performative Photography, and that I use this in a targeted way, I find my art-making much more exciting. This allowing chance has transformed what used to be a “tense, tolerant attitude” into a “relaxed, tense attitude”.
As a rule, my artistic photographs are created in the following steps
- Beginning a conscious action.
- A process is initiated.
- Dropping into the awareness that this process cannot be controlled.
- Associative engagement with the result.
- Digital processing with the aim a visual narrative as ONE NEW TRUTH among many.
Narrative through visuals has always been the most important thing in my art.
Even in earlier times as a painter I already created narrative art.
