We are pleased to invite you to Andernorts/Elsewhere
, an exhibition by Ulrike Kolb and Eva Schöffel at Loris Gallery, Berlin.
There is little interconnection between the works by Ulrike Kolb and Eva Schöffel, one might think at first. If any, would it be some linkage to tradition, of all things? While one of these artists is an analog photographer, the other uses linocut, a high pressure technique akin to woodcut, and looking back on centuries of tradition. Both deal with urban space as it surrounds us today, and with the structures organizing it. Perceiving these structures with a regard that blends wonderment with formal intent, and thus seeing them anew, may be the actual shared plane both artists operate on. While French sociologist Marc Augé coined the term “non-places” for the margins of contemporary big city space, the objects and areas in the images by these two artists could be called non-images, as they show what hitherto has not been perceived as worthy of an image.
