The unique SCOPE experience expands this year in partnership with Kaserne's cultural organizations, featuring: film, music, theatre and performance.
Tanja Selzer draws her motifs from the daily media-related flood of images as components of human seceneries, figures in wild natural spectacles or
single persons and animals infront of or inside a natural background. She changes these images by composition, shift of colour and an ease of paint application, so they appear in the guise of a pretended, mostly idyllic scene.
Anna Borowy's motifs are primarily human characters and moments, depicted portrait-style and manifesting particular events. The reduced
appliance of outlines and forms connects the figures with the backgrounds and accompanied diaphane images of animals. The apparent youth and grace of the potrayed are distorted by flawy structures and sinister traits.
