»Aftermath«, 2004/2006

»Aftermath« is a documentary work. It shows locations that have been struck by fire. What used to be standard housing interior, has been transformed, became something else, something new. Heat and dust created an almost surrealistic world. A scenery that appears staged like a set decoration for a bizarre theatre play.

The interiors may have existed for decades. In contrast, this newly formed setting will vanish again quickly. Its life span is short. Probably no one else will notice its existence, before it all gets destroyed again for replacement and reconstruction.

Despite all tragic involved, these fading places seem to possess a strangely powerful beauty.
