Canadian Centre for Architecture Exhibition Photos: "Dieter Appelt : La catastrophe des choses/ The catastrophe of things"

Images in the exhbition featured the attic of the Künstlerhaus Bethanien in Berlin. Fascinated by sites charged with history, German artist Dieter Appelt uses his examination of the attic to inquire into the invisible, mysterious, and indefinite forces of decay that lie beyond everyday experience. By concentrating on structural details, and by confronting the surfaces of the wooden beams, he has photographed the attic in such a way that it becomes a new reality, marked by the corrosive signs of passing time. Photographs of images in the exhibition: No. 3, 5 and 14 from the sequence Bethanien, 1984-91.
