I was curious to return to my hometown in northern Germany and take a look at what interests me, where I am drawn to after having had some distance. In the end, a series emerged that deals with formal-aesthetic questions and depicts an area of Bremen that is particularly familiar to me in such a close and subjective way that it becomes irrelevant again that it is this very familiar place. I did not wish to make a statement about my hometown and what it is like there. Subconsciously however, I was probably concerned with familiarity, even security in the neglected, peace and seclusion in these overlooked places.
