observations at the rivers Dumme and Jeetze
Two ateries of water, the river Dumme and the river Jeetze, surround, flow through and revive Salzwedel. During my art residence at Künstler- und Stipendiatenhaus des Altmarkkreises Salzwedel in 2019, I investigated the two rivers in their changing liveliness at different sections from the sources to the mouth of the river Elbe within a quarter of a year. Inspired by historical maps, I also followed the original meandering river course of the now mostly straightened riverbeds.
Flow characteristics, velocities, surface structure, sounds, as well as movement patterns of living beings were captured on-site in cyanotypes, see Tylsen Dumme Park, further reflections in photogram- and wire reliefs followed. Works from 2019 – 2021
