Mundane Confusion Constant Mystification, 2018–ongoing
With this series Erli Grünzweil tries to (re)construct the non-linear path of a young boy alienated from his original milieu. It is the quest for finding one’s own attitude and shows the conflicts, contradictions and uncertainties of various social milieus. Grünzweil opens up an abstract and fragmentary world in which the viewers can project themselves. Lens-based images are mixed with non-lens-based so they collide, blend in and blur. Manipulations appear credible, unprocessed images seem surreal. The photos are overcoming a repressed past, a dreamy present and a doomed future. Towards the far-off goal of a happy and fulfilled life.
