The first photo of this project was taken in a small Ladenkino in Berlin. The last photo was taken in front of a white garage in France. I took all of the other photographs somewhere else on the planet.
Fascinated about ways of seeing, imagination and grip I started working on my first publication Can I see?. Inspired by the absence of truth and hierarchy, knowing all of the context will be my very own, the images offer no specific explanation but give rise to the question of what it is you are looking at, and why. Spaces become autonomous spaces, their meaning can only be grasped in its evocative power.
I exhibited Can I see? as an installation during the group exhibition HERE WE ARE WE HERE in december 2021.
By abandoning the storyline and isolating images of places and things, devoid of context, I can see. Can I see the ordinary – doors, chambers, windows – the spaces in-between the inside and the outside, as access to and as suggestion of something new?
