The exhibition “Runway” by the Berlin photographer Andreas Trogisch contains large scale images of runway markings of the former airport Berlin Tempelhof.
It builds on the series “Asphalt” and “Technik” from his Desiderata series. On “asphalt,” apparently for motivic reasons, but in a different, “objective” view, without a subject-commenting change through light and shadow, moisture, perspective.
With “technology”, the project has in common that it investigates the change of material through human doing. These are changes that aim at functioning in a certain way, but always have to defend against the obvious superiority of the inner and outer human nature: the failure, the decay, the arbitrariness of matter in the form of gravity, corrosion or erosion.
At the same time, three further works from the series will be shown as part of the exhibition curated by Sabine Schnakenberg entitled “[Space] Street. Life. Photography” at the Triennial of Photography in Hamburg’s Deichtorhallen.
