ARTIST PROFILE

Eri Kassnel

  • Romania (b. 1973 in Timişoara)
  • Currently in (near) Augsburg, Germany.
  • We collect proofs like images, documents and letters to verify our memories. I follow from this an existential doubt: Can I trust memory? Who am I really? If I leave no trace, have I ever existed?

REPRESENTATION

home is somewhere else

  • 2013
  • Photography, photo album, different papers 34 x 21 x 6 cm Mittelschwäbisches Heimatmuseum Krumbach Art Prize of the town of Krumbach

  • The piece focuses on an obsessive search for a place of identification and belonging. I describe it as a long car ride without arrival because every apparent arrival makes you painfully aware, that homeland isn’t where you searched for it.
