"Might there not be a link, for instance, between the stain over the wash-stand and the peg on the wardrobe or the scratches on the floor? We might have spotted one sign, but how many more that we had not spotted might be concealed in the natural order of things?"
Witold Gombrowicz, Cosmos

Uta Eisenreich is fascinated by the attempt to establish order within an inconsistent reality that constantly exceeds the borders of comprehension. Her most recent work focuses on the shortcomings of our cognitive tool-kit. A NOT B walks us along the fine line between common sense and uncommon nonsense in a realm strangely reminiscent of long-forgotten pre-school books.

Uta Eisenreich photographs ever-changing combinations of elementary objects arranged by basic methods of classification. From one image to the other, the meaning of things keeps transforming. A web of clues and associations is spun, in which one is triggered to discern underlying patterns and construct sense of the illusory correlations of a-logic connections.

The exhibition of photographs, accompanied by a reader, is compiled from excerpts of the forthcoming book A NOT B, designed by Julia Born.

A NOT B will be published in Fall 2009 by Roma Publishers.
