If you want to keep a secret, you must also hide it from yourself.
Time travel – Self-portraits – published in Peter Walther Gartmann’s biography.
These images reflect what I feel and think. They are dreams turned into images. They show things the way they could be. Or the way they are?
Forward and ever further out into the world to realize who I am, and only then out!
True adventures are in the head.
The self-portraits «time travel» of Peter Gartmann were created in analog form in 1984. They show unreal formations. The closeness and expanse have an effect on the space. Searching circles lead the self-portraits into novel spaces where they meet in a new way – familiar and yet so mysterious.
The images’ landscape of forms shows reality and mystery. Presence and dissolution. Fragile as well as ambiguous. Space, light and movement are the elements here.
To conceal, disclose, and break open are Peter Gartmann’s motifs. His pictures show the search for protection and yet infinity in their own floating world. It is their ever-recurring journey back to himself.
Being in the minority, even in the minority of one, did not make one crazy. There was truth and there was untruth, and if you clung to the truth, even against the whole world, you were not crazy.
If freedom means anything at all, it means above all the right to tell other people what they don’t want to hear.
With almost deadly certainty, we are moving towards an age of totalitarian dictatorships.
