Lena Henke's work The Doors brings quite unusual materials into Cologne's Sculpture Park, which stand out clearly against the nature reference of most of the other works. Stainless steel frames and printed rubber mats are motifs derived from an urban life of experience. In the Park these seem to be citing another world. The images show graffiti depicting some famous photographs by Brassaï that, when enlarged, look on the one hand like archaic creatures, while the flow of the rubber mats and their repetition, on the other hand, remind us of film clips.
