Marc Brandenburg, 
Alpha St’ 
@ Galerie
Thaddaeus
Ropac 
— 

The drawings of
women enveloped
in their clothes and
immobilised like
ghostly figures from
another age show
a fascination for
superficial detail...
 

At first glance:

Brandenburg's
almost spectrally
delicate pencil
drawings seem
like negatives of
snapshots of a
bizarre parallel
world. 

The exhibition:
 
Is the Berlin-based 
artist's 5th solo with
Ropac, which comprises
24 drawings from a
new series of works
based on historical
photographs of
traditional costumes, 
and on snapshots
of young people
in school uniforms. 

The striking
feature is the sign
Alpha Street — 
isolated from its
context and thus
pointing nowhere.
A narration takes
shape, with the
viewer in the role
of the spectator of
a dreamlike, surreal
sequence – at once
detached, excluded
and ensnared in a
crippling perpetuity
between past
and future.”
