Julia Ninck Blok (*1982) concerns herself with areas of nature in her work. Point of departure are situational, on the spot captured photographic impressions that – compiled in books or adapted in drawings, pictures of material, or painting - open worlds of imagination whose dreamlike undertone is mainly due to the point of view of the observer, which is left open. That said, her work does not primarily aim at the discovery, labelling, or categorizing of pictured details of nature.  Rather, it is about the selective composition of the pictures of emblematic dimensions – so to speak symbols that each stand in an ambivalent dialogue with their own inner life.  As a place for individual emotions and feelings, they offer (with their monumentality) both in the exhibition: projected screen and room for illusion.
