DIE WENDE (THE TURNING POINT)
Material exploration in response to the complex memory the German Baltic landscape holds
“Dissonance is produced by any landscape that enchants in the present but has been a site of violence in the past. But to read such a place only for its dark histories is to disallow its possibilities for future life, to deny reparation or hope – and this is another kind of oppression. If there is a way to see such landscapes, it might be thought of as ‘occulting’: the nautical term for a light that flashes on and off, and in which the periods of illumination are longer than the periods of darkness.” – Robert Macfarlane
The photography was made in collaboration with artist Samantha Albert and will be exhibited in dialogue with Albert's sculpture.
