Christiane Peschek

The process of her work is guided by the failure of the perfect photographic picture and the exploration of visual reality. Partly biographical, partly as an observer from the outside she searches for the codes and roles of (visual) intimacy. She refers to Jaques Lacan and Jorge Luis Borges, which both question the definition of reality and it’s construction. 
Rethinking the photographic image production she focuses on expanding the presentation of visual content, she searches for new possibilities to display her work by extending the image from it’s conventional 2 dimensional surface to text, objects and smell.
Through the reconstruction of images she is facing absence, physical, emotional or visual. Seeing photography as a temporary fragment of a constructed reality she extracts the image’s content from it’s eternal statement to create transformations with hybrid contexts of perception.
