Yvon Chabrowski talks about her photographic work SEA PIECES I-IV (2014/15) which is currently part of the group exhibition SEA PIECES – facts and fiction at the Alfred Ehrhardt Foundation in Berlin.

Four blue photographs show surfaces of water. On closer inspection, they exhibit a certain kind of disturbance, traces of a rough manipulation by image processing. While the movement of the waves stopped, another dynamic takes space. For underneath, behind, and within that stillness of soothing blue, something seems to have been made to disappear that is now taking shape. Something presses that surface from below or pulls the viewer closer to the picture, a disruption, a noise, which shares little of the meditative, calming effect of the sea. Upon closer inspection, the eye detects outlines of floating objects, ghostly lines drawn into the water by their movement.
