behind curtains
Houses conceal the human being from the public sight, protect him of the world, envelop his private and secret spheres. Windows allow a look-out to the public space but at the same time reveal an insight into the private concerns in the building.Further more the storefront of a house and the furnishing reflect the mindset of their inhabitants and owners.Inspired by the project personal views of Susanne Wehr, using photos of it, the work behind curtains focuses on the sensitive balance between the inner worlds and the outer realities, visualizes this ambivalent relation, which searches an equilibrium of diverse forces.
The display titles have been inspired by a poem of Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland, in which dreams and realities converges.

A boat beneath a sunny sky

Lingering onward dreamily

In an evening in July

Children three that nestle near

Eager eye and willing ear

Pleased a simple tale to hear

Long has paled that sunny skys

Echos fade and memories die

Autumn frosts have slain July

Still she haunts me, phantomwise

Alice moving under skies

Never seen by waking eyes

In a Wonderland they lie

Dreaming as the days go by

Life , what is it but a dream?
