SIDEWALK FOSSIL (BROOKLYN) . 2017

+ SCHWARZ CONTEMPORARY

Superimposed once as a positive and once as a negative, and kept in black and white, the motif becomes an abstract image. But in the top left-hand corner, reality enters. Playing with opposites – a recurrent element of Johanna Jaeger’s artistic practice – also appears in permanent liquid_1 and permanent liquid_2. Two glass containers filled with water, with ink slowly spreading out in it, were placed on two analogue photographs of slabs of stone. In these works, the currently moving pattern of the flowing ink is superimposed on the pattern of the stones – the result of a material movement that petrified a long time ago. In the moment of photographing it, this movement is captured as well: as an image.
