Statement

"Deborah Bohnert’s art comes from the inside. The work is deeply rooted in her biography. The observer is mystified, mesmerized and disturbed because the artist appears to be present in any and all of her pictures and objects. Depending on the viewpoint, one also seems to recognize a part of oneself – as if the artist would hold a mirror to look into.

Deborah Bohnert plays with colors, forms, and materials, placing everyday artifacts into a new, artistic context: objects, familiar from our youth – toys, dolls, clothing, photos and other accessories –suddenly become visible in an entirely different state: as a photo montage or a collage, as a painting or as objects within an installation.

Deborah Bohnert’s art carries a lightness and sometimes the ironic twist is unmistakably visible. Her pictures and objects tell stories everyone may detect individually for him/herself. In the presence of her art, everyday life sometimes appears a little less dreary! "


Dr. Ulrich Haegele Professor for Media Studies, University of Tuebingen, Germany and  Curator
