Text on Ort des Geschehens (Place of Events)
What looks like a particular scene - maybe a crime scene - questions the viewer’s perception of watching and seeing. In Ort des Geschehens (Place of Events) the images are a deceit, as there has no crime been committed, nothing has happened at all – even when the image suggests so. The viewer falls back on memories of film scenes in order to read the image. The main subject of this series is not what we see in a photograph but what we make out of it. The absence of content heightens the sense of a detached nothingness that becomes a trope with the medium and raises questions about what photography is or does. Every photograph has an individual subtitle suggesting a possible reading, alluding to each scene a fictional narrative.
