Interlude. Exhibition spaces in between two exhibitions (2009-2013)


Interlude is a visual research into exhibition spaces and museums. Can we see the museum as a metaphor for photography itself? The archive currently consists of about 100 photographs of museum interiors, exhibition spaces, interiors of new and historical buildings, made with a large format analogue camera or with a digital camera.

This series focuses onto the time and the spaces between two exhibitions when the area is closed for the public. The pieces of art have been removed so that the photographed objects are taking in their places as if they are the art themselves. By the strong emphasis onto composition and balanced colours the photographs receive a strong autonomic character and turn into tableaux.
