Artists who create collages appropriate existing images and assemble them in new ways without being bound to a style or a medium. Frauke Dannert (b. Herdecke, 1979; lives and works in Cologne and Düsseldorf) has dedicated herself to this technique. Over the course of a decade, she has built a considerable repertoire of forms she now variously applies in works on paper, wall paintings, projections, films, and photographs. Architecture is the basic material and subject of the collages in which she explores questions of perception as well as orientation and recollection. She dismantles structures to examine their sculptural potential. Drawing on a personal archive of found pictures and her own photographs, she selects jutties, spires, ribbon windows, or entire façades, makes multiple photocopies, and alters dimensions and proportions. Out of the resulting elements she then pieces together weightless structures with a futuristic air. Gunda Luyken, Jari Ortwig, and Eveline Suter contributed essays to Frauke Dannert’s first monograph.
