Christian Haake constructs memory. Transforming his memories and mental images into precisely detailed objects and installations, Haake‘s productions tap into our collective memory, shaping a new image of reality in the process. His concern lies not with the verisimilitude of his works, but with their divergence and the fracture which separates reality, perception and mental image. The rich poetic potential of his works is directed not towards the affirmation of memory, but towards its subtle destabilization. Haake‘s work foregrounds the power of memory to generate reality, suggesting that memory, in all its inexactitude, might communicate a ‘more truthful’ image of reality than reality itself is capable of producing.
Working without recourse to such aids as photographs or detailed sketches, Haake‘s art-making is open to and indeed flirts with the effects of divergence and slippage,
resulting in images which are new yet intrinsically coherent. While these constructions are grounded in memory, Christian Haake‘s works are simultaneously distanced from
reality by their minute size and are quite obviously not intended as direct representations.
