After training extensively as a zoologist, German artist Jochen Lempert began taking photographs of the animal world, merging his scientific expertise with a more formal, visual, and poetic sensibility. Hung in a grid on the outside wall of The Front Room, the series of black-and-white portraits of birds portray living creatures as forms suspended in space.
