GERMANY, 1966

Kerstin Drechsel’s subject is the capturing of how an individual or group expresses or identifies themselves through their rituals or the environments they create around them. Often working on series of drawings at a time, Drechsel depicts everyday lives in all their oppressive reality, dreams of escape, and obsessions. Her work uses images from the internet, magazines and books, as well as her own snapshots and from life, in order to transform them into an archive of constantly recycled wishes, dreams and memories. Captured and adopted motifs combine in her drawings with the vague promise of desire, fulfilment, and adventure.
