Product Description

This catalogue documents exhibitions at Künstlerhaus Bethanien, Berlin; Carolyn Heinz gallery, Hamburg and the solo exhibition “Cache“ at Herold gallery, Bremen, (2020).

The cover motif is a digital print of a peregrine falcon. The gridded motif of the wild bird, taken from a 1950’s edition of Brehm’s Animal Life, is inspired by the supposed, or actual, reconquest of urban space by animals during the Coronavirus lockdown. In the exhibition "Cache“ it is combined with watercolor paintings from the "Use of Geometry" series. The individual pieces of the watercolor series bring together varying motifs, e.g. decorations of the building facades of former GDR state buildings. The reduction of the forms, the consistent format, and the cobalt blue combines the different three- and two-dimensional templates into a visual reflection on the contradictory relationship between modern architecture and ornament.
