Jeder gegenwärtige Augenblick birgt Vergangenheit und Zukunft in sich. Damit ist die Momentaufnahme nicht nur Abbild der Realität, sondern konstruiert zugleich die Umstände ihrer Entstehung. Die Fotografien der Ausstellung widmen sich eben dieser Momentaufnahme. Ihr Interesse gilt den Rändern; ideologischen und geographischen. Was sind die Randgebiete in Deutschland? Welches Zentrum setzt fest, wo seine Ausläufer und Grenzen verlaufen? Wo liegen die Ränder und wer bewohnt sie? Sind Randgebiete Orte, die ihr Dasein abgeschlagen von der Mitte fristen? Und was wäre dann eigentlich die Mitte in Deutschland oder die deutsche Mitte?

Each present moment contains past and future. In that sense the snapshot is not only a mirror image of reality but also creates the circumstances of its making. The photographies of the group show will focus on this very snapshot in time. The exhibiting photographers are interested in fringes; ideologic and geographic ones. What are the fringes in Germany? Which center defines its foothills, fringes, borders? Where are they located and who lives there? Are they equivalent to places which, distant from the center, are languishing in obscurity? And what would be the center of Germany or the German center?

ANDRI BJÖRGVINSSON – ABOVE AND BELOW

Breath goes on, night and day without us being conscious of it.
You can control it but non the less it will always continue on its own with out your conscious control.
Just like the most basic musical gesture can be controlled, it can also continue on its own when the mind goes elsewhe

Above and below is a fantasy about the machines that control our impulses. That we are not a starting point of impulses and actions but rather just one link in a chain. We are the drumstick in somebody´s hand, the link between a force and an instrument.

This is Andris first solo exhibition in Berlin. His extensive Installations are bridging the gaps between acoustic and optic as well as the inner and the outer.
