18.11.–14.1. 2017

opening: 18.11. 2016   7 – 9 pm
introduction: Felix Sattler, curator

Nina Röder travels through rough vastness and deals with aspects of the unknown, the uncanny and an ambivalent body image. The performative interaction of the human body with the natural surroundings is written into the photographs as an act of occupation. Sometimes it is the body of the artist herself amidst untamed wilderness – naked, delicate, cowering – unsure whether emerging from the landscape or disappearing into it. On the film of body and landscape, Röder’s photographs represent ambiguous states of mind and moods – always perceptible but never tangible. The images of the figures find a formal echo in the deserted landscapes and still lifes.

The open visuality of her work is enhanced by an associative display, dimensions and the viewing height of the photographs vary and bring – depending on the combination – new plots and meanings to light.
