Sarah Straßmann
Opposite

The human feeling of not beeing located anywhere as well as the experience of the deterritorialization of the world are topics that have been discussed in the past for several times. Terms like identity and reality began to crumble by that process again and again.

In her work Opposite, Sarah Straßmann shows things and places situated in a dark surrounding, in an unpersonal, undefined room. These photographs are about pictures, associations and room atmospheres the artist had in her mind when thinking about things like the blurring of boundaries and the incoherence of everyday life.

At the same time, the chosen motifs stay knowingly undefined – they leave space for the observers own imaginations.

Like a room between – a third place – the fictional frame of the work opens up possibilities to react on this deterritorialized world within its apparently irreversible loss of safety.
