Lockdown

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]I found this situation in a village in the Rhineland. The bricked-up former entrance, in combination with the mirror that points to the virtual world, seems to me to be an ideal symbol for life in the lockdown. /// Diese Situation fand ich in einem Dorf im Rheinland vor. Der zugemauerte ehemalige Eingang, in Kombination mit dem...

turn

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]The throat and the neckline, as the base of the head and as a columnar turning point of the body, turned either to the left or the right, is the motif of this photographic series. Looking around, orienting oneself, turning towards and away, determing one´´ own point of view is brought to an end here...

DAS UNSICHT­BARE

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Die Textcollage fragmentiert und verschränkt literarische Zitate mit einem Covertitel des Spiegel von 2016. Folgende Sätze wurden verwendet: Es ist uns gelungen das Unbekannte zu verscheuchen, und wir sind in Sicherheit, als die erste Kultur in der Geschichte erzittern wir nicht angesichts unserer Lebensbedingungen, wir haben sie unter Kontrolle.

These resorts usually have gigantic dimensions, corresponding to the onslaught of tourists, many of whom come from Germany. The explosive nature of the current political situation in Turkey mow leaves many of these resorts...

the opened hand

This motif is a detail of an advertising poster of a financial institution in Wroclaw (Poland). The gesture is ambiguous: offering, enticing, demanding and needy at the same time...

Fall

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]This pair of wings lay seperated from the body on the amazingly clean floor on the footpath in front of the artist´s apartment in Wroclaw (Poland). The body of the dove was nowhere to be seen, no more feathers. The dove symbolizes peace. Peace has lost it´s wings. The picture appears like a heraldic motif of our...

So Now

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]This photomontage shows a compass rose, a stone and brass inlay in the floor of the entrance to the subway at Hamburg's south main station. What was remarkable for me was the proportionally too narrow surrounding space of the floor inlay and the direct alignment of almost all directional peaks to walls. SO NOW -...
