For the book project “Little Wilderness” Gabriele Kuhlewind visited places in urban areas where the vegetation is largely left to its own devices. Her pictures show plants that usually get little attention, a few animals, stones. Technically, she left the creation of the picture partly to (controlled) chance in order to create blurred spaces for imagination. She sees the small wilderness as a place where free, natural development can be observed, which is in contrast to the ordering principle of the city.
Gabriele Kuhlewind (born 1961) lives in Berlin. Education since the mid-90s with Sibylle Hoffmann and Thomas Michalak, participation in numerous exhibitions at home and abroad. From an initially strongly documentary approach, her work has developed over the years to a subjectively observing perspective. Her pictures show personal perspectives, which she mostly photographs in her own living environment. At the same time, there are always experimental works on the construction of memories, for which she uses found photographs.
