Broken streets, destroyed infrastructures, helplessly dangling cables. The works in the »Broken Places« series show the eerie and at the same time beautiful silence after the storm. These places have experienced »catastrophes«, this seems to have been bad first and foremost for humans, whose fragile constructions could not withstand the violence while nature preserved its undisturbed beauty and sublimity. These motifs symbolize a crack in the reality that appears so unbreakable to us, whose thin, fragile surface is brought to our awareness by looking at these works by Lena Schmidt.
