Cyrill Lachauer is a reader of tracks. His works derive from lengthy journeys around United States backcountry, so much in the public eye of late, and back to his own roots in Upper Bavaria and Berlin.

About

The gaps, quotations and seemingly incidental details in his photographs, films and writings are clues to hidden stories inscribed within landscapes as enduring traces.

What Do You Want Here is the first exhibition of a cycle produced on the road in the United States over the last two years. The linchpin is his film Dodging Raindrops – A Separate Reality. It begins in Los Angeles and reconstructs field research trips allegedly undertaken by the controversial ethnologist Carlos Castaneda, who went on to found the New Age movement. The film is complemented by photographs and texts. Observations recorded along the Mississippi combine with fictional situations and historical references to create a multiple-voice narrative, offering a broader perception of the landscapes along the route.
