"Night is sublime, day is beautiful." (Immanuel KANT)

"'The Gravity of Place' is a project made during an artist’s residency at Domaine de Kerguéhennec in Brittany. Kerguéhennec is a contemporary art centre that has over thirty sculptures installed in its surrounding landscape. The place, where other artists have previously left their mark, is charged with memory and meaning.

The series explores the concept of ‘place’ as the essence of emotional connection through darkness, the limits of what is representable and the perception of reality. Night appears as an object of discovery, mystery and pleasure, a hieroglyphic space that leads us to imagine something more that what we are actually seeing. We enter the terrain of the mind, the imperceptible, chance findings. In short, this proposal is sensorial rather than rational, filled with intangible elements that gradually appear and disappear as the pages are turned." (publisher's note)

"Die Nacht ist großartig, der Tag ist schön." (Immanuel Kant)

"The Gravity of Place' ist ein Buch-Projekt, das während eines Artist in Residence- Aufenthalts des Künstlers in Domaine de Kerguéhennec in der Bretagne entstanden ist.
Die Bilderserie erforscht das Konzept des 'Ortes' als das Wesen der emotionalen Verbindung zwischen der Dunkelheit, den Grenzen des Darstellbaren und der Wahrnehmung der Wirklichkeit.
Die Nacht als Gegenstand der Entdeckung, des Mysteriums und des Vergnügens, ein hieroglyphischer Raum, der uns dazu bringt, etwas mehr vorzustellen, als das was wir sehen.
Wir haben das Gelände des Geistes, die unmerklichen, zufälligen Befunde." (freie übersetzung des publisher's note)
