“For me the main thing is how the ideas materialize. That means the photographs that end up hanging on the wall are the focus. Of course, how they were created plays a significant role, but the resulting work is what’s important.”

“The result of analyzing the colors’ dynamic potential are surfaces with a metallic shine possessing the lucid quality of water. The mercurial, potentially space-penetrating quality of the colored sheets of paper that are directly attached to the wall is only kept at bay through their unfinished character. The rigorous frame construction of the canvases appears as a picture within a picture, pointing out additional formal boundaries so that the cool color fields in the background lose none of their severity.”


Susanne Prinz, CHROMAINTENSITY (Anke Völk. Chromaintensity, Show 19, Kienzle Art Foundation, Berlin, 2016, p. 9-10)

NULL HYPOTHESIS

 

“I love photography’s ability to convey ambiguity, contradictions, multiple emotions, and the fact that you can pack all that into a single ‚visual word’ – a single image. You cannot do it as well with non-visual forms of expression, like text or music, because they are sequential.”

Jan Cieślikiewicz (excerpt from an interview with LensCulture, 2017)

Dinner for Sinner

 

“Democracy, peace, rule of law, and freedom are increasingly threatened throughout the world, and our longstanding world order appears more fragile than it has for a long time. The material porcelain is strongly associated with the image of an ideal world, and is therefore particularly suitable for addressing, in a dramatic and combative manner, the feelings of fragility and unravelling we are currently experiencing.”

“Each usable object becomes the object of a transformation and, through an upgrading of sorts, a monument to the actual thing. By casting a set of cereal bowls in bronze Judisch creates a monument to banality.”
