Inkjet prints on Hahnemuehle paper
What is it left from the promise of progress from Modernity?
For this comprehensive series, Eriksen (aka Valeria Schwarz) photographed factory buildings in Berlin and the east of Germany. Here, too, the decay and the relics of former industrialisation are the most obvious theme. But it is also the emptiness, the loss of actual purpose, of which the artist knows how to tell an impressive story, the absence of the people who found work here over several generations.
