Frankfurt am Main 2021

In her work Vestige, Kathi Kæppel examines the preserved traces of previous use and the history of the building. The work, consisting of installations: drawings in space with light and sound, thematize the cycle of construction and destruction. The drawn traces tell stories and work against oblivion. They evoke the invisible and the past. As fragments, they overlap in a gradation of depth and connect with the space and the now-time. The selected material creates a visual echo due to its transparent character as a luminous body and reflector.
