We move through urban space, but we perceive it differently. What catches the eye of one person is overlooked by another. Some details only become clear to us when we direct our gaze to them.
We can never fully grasp urban space. Time and again, a building blocks our view. In order to see what lies behind it, we have to move to the other side, where, in turn, another building takes away our view.
The parts of the urban space that we cannot perceive, we can imagine. However, each person brings different experiences, so we fill the voids differently.
We have come together as artists to portray, respond to, and think further about our different perspectives of urban space. We want to find out what we see when our view is blocked. To do this, Sonja Ackermann, Christian Rocas and I create artworks on the same themes that relate to each other and allow us to look beyond the barriers.
We also extended our gaze in aural realms and therefore I created a soundtrack with my band mockART that revolves around the same themes as our artworks. The soundtrack will premier at the opening, but we can already give you a peak through the white window, which is now half open now.
We would be really happy to welcome you all at the exhibition which is hosted at a vintage summer house located in a park in the centre of Frankfurt.
