Kim Schönauer's sculptural (video) works can be understood as autonomous works, but they gain meaning precisely in their co-existence and in the subject of variation. In different ways, the objects play with allusions and memories of functions and yet remain mostly ambiguous.
The jumping scales of the different partial works place the viewers in different possibilities of perspectives. They explore the installation themselves, but at the same time they also step into the specifically chosen gaze of the camera. Staged in an unnatural appearance, the filmic sequences examine the constructed atmosphere of a nocturnal garden and insert themselves into the environment of the installation.
