New work by German artist Julia Bornefeld


It appears that Julia Bornefeld's pictures and objects stay in the realm of uncertainty. In many cases the viewer cannot even be sure of having identified the subject "correctly". Between picture – my concept of the picture also including the objects – and viewer there seems to exist a sort of uncertainty relation. In reality, though, we are not talking of a blurred perception here, meaning the subject of the artwork could be made out only indistinctly, but of an assertive perception, that is not tied to a recognition of subjects. (...) The impossibility of identifying the subjects depicted does not mean they remain unclear. They generate the "sharpness" of a visionary perception, much rather,  that is very much in contrast to a mere identification of reality.
