Edgar Leciejewski, Wand 18.03.2008, 2008, C-Print auf Aludibond, 140 x 200 cm
Leciejewski deceives his beholder, whom the sculptural quality of his pictures strikes as a trompe-l'oeil of sorts. So do the studio shots, photographs taken on different days in the fashion of a diary that document considerations on how photography is used and how it operates. Here, too, the gaze wavers, between the illusion of three-dimensionality and the plane surface on which it emerges, between optical illusion and disillusionment.
