DESCRIPTION

"What I’m interested in is the moment in which you think you have realised something, yet it eludes you a moment later." Jörg Sasse

Trophies, heaters, stairs, upholstered sofas, strip doors, oven cloths, plastic animals – at first glance these motifs seem to have no connection whatsoever and are not very spectacular. What exactly is being shown here? And for what purpose? Was is behind these interior scenarios and objects in a mysteriously deserted setting? Portrayed using unusual perspectives and details, the everyday items are not always recognisable at first glance. With his hermetic combinations of photographs, Jörg Sasse challenges the viewers to look more closely. A searching glance and decelerated observation is needed in order to expose analogies and correlations, to allow levels of meaning and visual planes to be recognisable, and to gain an insight little by little. At the same time, it is not possible to specify or categorize them. By going beneath the surface of things and rearranging them, Jörg Sasse playfully and very humorously reveals the subtle impact of the visual level.

The exhibition at C/O Berlin shows two main works by Jörg Sasse – 110 still lifes put together in ten blocks as well as the work Speicher II (storehouse II) that comprises of 512 images.
