BREAKING UP - Imaginations of change
The work “Breaking up” forms a visual trilogy that stages the narrative of letting go, of departure, of liberation in the successive dramaturgy of its individual images. This is a supra-individual, paradigmatic process; the person in the middle of the pictures does not embody a concrete person - but acts as an allegory of experiencing emancipatory experiences.
A scene in front of bright, glaring light: a person moves in the endless mode of a stylized hamster wheel, in a transverse view to the viewer. The dynamic of the rotation has no direction - it turns out to be an exhausting standstill: the person is trapped. The wheel stands on a platform. It remains unclear, diffuse and flat, what is attached to it. Reference to inscrutable, repressive conditions? This picture also shows another dark symbol of limitedness, enclosure: the motif is surrounded by a frame, which appears threatening due to its dark tones.
