Description

The series of pictures entitled "Leerstellen" [Blank Spaces] addresses the effect and the claim of authenticity of photo-like reproductions. These are blank spaces inserted into landscape photographs. 

In the form of black geometric figures characterized by an absence of materiality and defined solely by the borders of their outlines, they remove the substrate (negative) from the photographs while, conversely creating a series of inserted abstract body forms (positive). In the photographs, the environment articulated through a central perspective only serves as a visual framework. This results in fictitious image constructs beyond the limits of perspective that foreground their abstract two-dimensionality and also try to deny and defuse conventional spatial illusions.
