Description

By sampling and merging different image sources and, by means of analogue interventions, the works of Sebastian Häger function similarly to hypertexts. Figurative elements enter into connections, they point to something that creates an enriched frame of reference and the notion of a third space, which brings about a peculiar hovering between the logically reconstructable original contexts.

Häger’s works form a vortex of sorts, whose suction swallows up the consciousness of the beholder, but simultaneously regurgitates an infinite series of reflections. In their stratification, his works visualize not just the endless, empty space of perspective or the void of the unmarked space, the blankness or chaos of potential, out of which images emerge - they attempt to blur the relation between reality and illusion.
