What happens to memories when the places of memory have disappeared? During the Kodekü- Kollision der Künste: Kunst Residenz Weißwasser in August 2023 In Weisswasser-Süd I got to know the
memories of people, memories that remain, while the places where they were created have long since disappeared. If you want to go back, you find green meadows and fields in these places that are
no longer there. Nature now lives where there used to be a school, a club, where people lived. Photography is a documentation of a memory of a moment that has already passed. What remains is the
image, an image that, depending on the situation in which it is viewed, can enable a new narration of memory. Like an overexposure from image to image, the memory fades to a silhouette in the
white, open to a new interpretation of the vanished places.
The accompanying photo film is in post-production.
Many thanks to the Kodekü - Kollisionen der Kunst team.
to the city of Weißwasser and everyone who I met and shared your time with me.
