About: Deracination shows a ripped out root after a heavy storm in 2018. I fragmented the photograph and printed it in black and white on 32 common sandpaper sheets with different granulation. Because of the surface feel of the paper the picture turns into kind of an uncolour and dependent on the incidence of light it sparkles or not.
Deracination is a personal work about loss and disorientation in many different layers. It is a poetic approach towards the often brutal complexity of inevitable upheavals.
The sandpaper sheets are presented loosely on thrown away wood found on the streets.
