“In seiner freien Arbeit ‘ESC’ hat Max die ehemalige Innere-Deutsche Grenze
besucht. Die geschichtliche Vergangenheit mit gegenwärtigen Relikten
und dem naturbelassenen Grünstreifen haben ihn dazu beeinflusst
mit einem künstlerischen Ansatz, Momentaufnahmen einer möglichen
Fluchtszene nachzustellen. Beim betrachten dieser Bilder können unterschiedliche
Gefühle und Erinnerungen erweckt werden.

Durch eine zeitgenössische, modernen Darstellungsweise der „Grenze“
wird diesem Geschichtsträchtigen Ort eine vielerlei interpretierbare Ästhetik
verliehen mit großem Assoziationsspielraum.”

“Man expects a logical explanation for everything he sees in this world. If there’s not an immediate explanation, he is forced to grapple with perception, question his beliefs, and form his own conclusion about what he has perceived. It is extremely difficult for man to  accept the idea that there are still unanswered questions in this world. In this day and age, is it even possible to accept an unknown as truth? To view the previously unimaginable as fact?

In “Stranger Things” my goal is to let the incomprehensible remain that way. My aim is simply to let the viewer engage with the images without any guidelines or preconceived explanations, letting their imagination run wild. My hope is that they will form their own answers about these photos, or, ideally, engage with the work emotionally and let the unknown remain unknown.”
