For What It’s Worth (2019)

The German title of this installation (“Am Rande bemerkt” – literally: “Noted/noticed on the margin”) is difficult to translate into English without loosing some of its meaning: In everyday speech the expression is used in the sense of “as an aside” or “for what it’s worth”; in relation to this work it refers also to spotting something that is indeed physically on the fringe.
