Christiane Feser's work explores the borderland between photography and object, between human, dynamic spatial perception and the static, two-dimensional image space of photographic images.
Her working method questions the concept of the photographic and at the same time expands it in a playful way. Simple elements such as threads, pins and blank sheets of paper are transformed into complex nested structures, so-called photo objects, which create their own shadows in which the present and the past intertwine to form hybrid works between image and thing.
The photo objects enable the viewer to adopt different perspectives and at the same time challenge him to see analytically.
