The Fragile Boundary

Artist Blog by Jürgen Sobkowiak

The composition Wall shows another room within a room, a room as shelter or prison. This time the protagonist has built a shelter in the shower and prepared himself for the night. Repeatedly it is about the retreat into the interior, the retreat of the soul into the snail shell. The essence of my photographic studies always lies in the inner exploration and in the disclosure of psychological processes. This work also deliberately eludes clear interpretation but offers a multitude of associations. The painting The Poor Poet by Carl Spitzweg inspired me to make this work (the umbrella in my photograph is a reference to the painting).
