Tropolis and The Fallen Lady
Falling out and in between.
Fallen into type and out of place.
Staying, just to go.
Missing it, the where to be.
Lined between the dream of the real.
There somehow; the clear.
Stretching from the present now.
Out of hand, it cannot be.
‘Tropolis’ and ‘The Fallen Lady’ are series of work around the search for a place of happiness and feelings of being wrapped up in city life whilst longing for a more natural way of being.
Petra Börner often returns to themes inspired by the natural world and primal identity. Primitive drawings and ceramics bring forth the creature concealed within and wild expression surfaces.
