Borderliner

The focus of this work is on the boundaries between inside and outside and between reality and fiction. This boundary is symbolized by walls of varying texture and seemingly permeable places (windows) that only further obscure the view of what lies behind.

The photographic prints were sewn onto paper with thread, the stitching of which runs along the edge like Morse code. The act of sewing is hurtful and healing at the same time, like stitching a wound.

In contrast to the objectivity of the photograph is the painterly abstraction of the child’s drawing, which is a border to a particular degree: for the child’s drawing always wanders along the fine line between observation of the external environment and expression of the inner state of mind.

For this work I have collected drawings of 3 to 5 year old children, and let myself be inspired by them.
