CPF Presents Jessica Backhaus

 In Portræt, Video

Jessica Backhaus (Germany, 1970) investigates the human existence and its roots. Through an investigation of how to re-create these roots, Backhaus “visits” places from her childhood and youth and seeks to fill the holes in her memory. By re-creating these images a new understanding about how things are stored in our memory is created. In selected works from her two latest projects, Six Degrees of Freedom og Trilogy, photographs of places and certain atmospheres are presented, and the photographs switch between realism and abstraction.

In the exhibition Backhaus’ works take part in an artistic dialogue with works by the Danish artist Emil Salto (1968).
