Pirko Julia Schroeder

The work of Pirko Julia Schroeder is research for human made structures and cultural phenomena. She works with photography (or video) – but the photography isn`t shown in a frame on the wall. The photography is installed in the room. It works with the room and the special environment of the place. So the works are often site specific. Another important aspect of the works is the size. The photo installations or objects are often in the original size as the motive that has been photographed. So the perception of the works often deals with illusion that photography can provide.

For example at the installation »public telephone« in Nykarleby, Finland. There she installed the photograph of an public telephone that has been in this place – the only bus station in the city – some years before. So for the people of this place it was the illusion of the former telephone and also the memory of having this public telephone in this place.

Taking photographs of the surface of special places is also a kind of research for traces of time and people.

Related to this her latest work is »The skin of the third skin«. It took place while an art symposium in the Nuremberg Kunsthaus. Schroeder documented the surface of the building that has a rich history been used as a place for cultural projects, concerts, actions and exhibitions. The titel refers to the first skin of human being as the real skin, the second could be textile/clothes while the third skin is architecture.
