Hans-Christian Schink

1961 born in Erfurt
  lives in Leipzig

1986-1991 University of Visual Arts, Leipzig

"With his work Schink (Germany, b. 1961) focuses particularly on the appearance of the no-man's-land in urban environments. For instance, making use of monumental formats he photographed the construction of viaducts in the former East Germany. In the work represented here he recorded walls, spatial elements which under normal circumstances escape our attention. Built to separate or close off, they are photographed by Schink to fill the whole image, through which they lose their depth and dimensions, as well as every reference to their function."
