About the work
As a photographer, I regularly change my perspective, which initially means my local-spatial position. I make the decision to position myself both spontaneously and consciously, based on experience. For me, there is also something sculptural in looking at and working on the thing from different sides. The change of viewpoints leads to different starting positions in each case. In a figurative sense, these are comparable to the different understandings of the term perspective. This ambiguity is already inherent in the origin of the word – perspectare means “to look through something, to look at something closely” – although for centuries it was seen as a term only in the spatial sense in art. But even so, it represented an extension, because perspective added the third dimension. I ask myself to what extent others – artists, actors, but also people with completely different backgrounds – take up this old term and expand it. For example, creating a transition from the representational space into the spiritual in thought, the philosophical, the political space, how they have visions of society, take positions, but also, for example, with gestures, as in acting as a form of role-playing in space.
