The objects used in Fritz Bornstück's still lifes gain new life as the artist reuses and recycles the debris of popular culture in a practice he describes as cultural recycling. Bornstück (b. 1982) is a collector, pulling materials from wide and varied sources – such as film noir, found footage, his immediate surrounding or even private trash – and puts the contents of his ongoing collection in formal discussions to produce dynamic aesthetic friction. The used materials communicate the artist's creative context in translation, appropriating their sources and reinterpreting them to produce an associative space for the viewer.
Traces remain as the landscapes and places, which are depicted are abandonned. Silence, Light, Reflections, stories and history are calling to be unravelled.
