Echo ohne Ortsangabe, 2017 (signed)

by Heidemarie von Wedel


Photographs: Heidemarie von Wedel

Publisher: Self-Published/UND EINS_2016

56 pages

Price: 95

Comments: format 230 x 320 mm, thread bound, digital print

At the outset for "Echo without indication of place" were small black-and-white analogue prints from my archive. In the course of their artistic re-actualization the prints were re-photographed and retouched only to the degree that would allow the report of their original quality in a pulication. However, some of the reproductions show more than the perfect replay of the archive photo but also parts of the carrier on which the image was placed for the purpose of reproduction.

 

Within the sequence that was defined for "Echo without indication of place" the single pictures not only refer to each other through formal similarities. The report of the pictures in the sequence also change between the display of "image as image" and "image as archival document", which somewhat creates an echo from an otherwise unidentifiable origin. Alltogether the images occur as if distant and floating with a silent, vague space that was made to subject the images to a second glance. Past is always re-negotiable.
