a primo ad extremum
Objects that have a personal ideal value due to their history, their uniqueness or an emotional bond can be found in almost every apartment. Often they are presented like little treasures, are showcased items as well as an individual object memory.
Against the background of historical art chambers, Carina Linge stages in her latest works those things that are of particular value to their owners for personal reasons. The private treasures are lavishly illuminated and displayed together with those from existing collections.
The results are auratic photographs that line up like an object catalog with very own individual stories and meanings, entering into a mutual and multi-layered dialogue. Together with selected objets, the photographs are integrated in an installation that is creating a complex, tense and associatively charged frame of reference that goes far beyond any original meaning.
