unset sun / sunken sea

an extract from: how curious, how real (2019),
installation (photographic print 60x90cm, lamp);

The glow of a lamp is directed at the image of a sunset whose horizon is in line with the edge between the wall and the floor. The studio shot of this „postcard motif“ imitates the aesthetics of a rendering. The work refers to the process of making/taking pictures and points to the culturally shaped, subjective perception of an area as an aesthetic whole - in other words, to the construction of a landscape by the viewer.
