Tatjana Danneberg’s preoccupation with the nature of images and the possibilities that unfold through their manipulation and deconstruction commences with photography – low-fi images taken with simple automatic cameras that depict her immediate surroundings, friends, and acquaintances in a familiar, often intimate manner. After developing the images, she prints them on specific foils using an inkjet printer, then paints on them with gesso in broad strokes. Finally she glues the works – each one a symbiosis of printed image and primer – to canvas. Loosely cropped, showing bodily details or contortions, the images have an eventful feeling, depicting moments of action – or a lack of it. Their presence is almost brutal, and yet they are dominated by an atmosphere of intimacy.
A solo exhibition of Danneberg's work, Wait a Minute, took place at the Salzburger Kunstverein (Salzburg) in 2021.
