Platzhalter des Nichts II (Placeholder of nonentity)
Platzhalter des Nichts (Placeholder of nonentity)
Anna Siggelkow deciphers places and transfers them into a new context. She shows a flattened world between figuration and abstraction. Objects clearly defined in their function develop a strange life of their own. They seem to play a role in an important and on the other hand absurd spectacle – a 2D vision without reference to a third dimension or a meta-level. The images suggest a world with a post history perspective. The mortal human body finds no place in a world of things. Hence, one searches in vain for patina, and if so, it seems to be deliberately added rather than being part of a weathering.
Anna Siggelkow questions the human endeavour to assign a clear function to things. She is concerned with the design of spaces and the relationship of people to objects.
