Constanze Vogt

To quote the prize jury’s statement for the Gottfried-Brockmann Prize:

Constanze Vogt makes use of various mediums in her work. Her images, installations, object and written pieces all employ a limited range of materials. She uses ephemeral materials, such as paper, language and light for her works, which examine temporary spaces. The extensive and almost ritualistic working process that she uses to transform the material is clearly visible in her works and extends the objects, endowing them with a performative character. At first glance highly self-referential, the works create a sense of a search for one’s own language to lend a poetical light to the relationship between language, image, object and body.

The particular power and strengths of Vogt’s work lie in exactly this poetical, unspoken language with which she visualises phenomena of transition and transformation. She approaches very precisely the boundaries of visibility and invisibility with a constant and enduring intensity, through which her works are to be interpreted as a conscious and anachronistic commentary on the ever more loudly-expressed popular culture of image making.
