The interior of a room influences people's lives. Research has shown that it is a basic human need to be able to see further than the next corner. Only then can man escape a dangerous situation. The corner of the room plays an important role in the composition Treibgut: like stranded flotsam, the protagonist sits in the corner of a run-down garden shed. It is broad daylight and the improvised dwelling is very primitive this time. The viewer is repeatedly confronted with the concepts of loneliness and withdrawal. I am a great admirer of the work of Francesca Woodman (1958-1981). In her photographic works, she is predominantly concerned with her body and how it relates to the space around her.
