By showing two recently finished works and one newly started series, Patrick Raddatz, student at the Hochschule für Gestaltung Offenbach, opens his second solo exhibition on 22nd August 2009.
The title of a country song from 1947 »I Forgot More, Than You’ll Ever Know« refers to the works »disjecta« and »now is blessed, the rest, remembered«, researching both the processes of recollections and their transformation in different ways. Whereas »disjecta« displays fragments of texts in a cut-up manner using discarded information systems, »now is blessed, the rest, remembered« traces the remainders of memories by means of Photography. The third, photographic and yet untitled work will be shown in a large format work in progress situation.
