I’m a Mountain

C-PLATFORM × Katrin Korfmann & Jens Pfeifer

 

Project Description

In this lecture, Katrin shared the creation concept, creation mode and creation experience of her photography works.

 

Her photography works, videos and facilities are all seen from the perspective of photography concept, observers and people being observed in social level. The viewpoint on its relations has constructed the behavioral camera effect and found out social norms in public environment, as well as the influence of camera on behavior and social norms in public environment. Her works can be composed by formal grades, structure and time-space experience, targeted case filing, surveyed social construction and behavioral characteristics in public space.

 

In this salon, Jens shares his creation inspiration and creation experience.

 

“People need stories to orient themselves in the world, and even when the magic goes  the myth stays: in the form of the stories through which we relate to ourselves and the things around us in order to make sense of that world ”. Jens Pfeiper wrote in his book.

In this salon, Jens shared his creation inspiration and creation experience.

 

Jens was grown up in a forest in German and the memories, smells and the longings of that place in childhood are retained in his work. Being brought up in a forest, animals and the forest itself form a familiar and ever returning image in his work.

 

Yet, underneath that layer of playful, narrative discourse between man and nature hides a subtle element of mysterious discomfort. The works of Jens Pfeiper often narrate his “story shape” via the possible conveying of material forms and shapes.
