“Iconographic images from Berlin are well known and in different tonalities: Sarah Eick now succeeds in the great feat that still demands admiration even from Urberliner:innen who have seen a great many photographs of their hometown: her photos undoubtedly reproduce Berlin motifs, but at the same time they are works of a great, translocal, abstract-poetic quality.
Peculiarly contextless, almost like UFOs, the familiar buildings and city views appear. Without any form of historicizing or nostalgic pathos, Eick gives them great dignity. “Even a snack booth looks sublime in her work.” – Tanja Dückers, writer, publicist and art historian.
Well-known places, whether Fehrbelliner Platz, Kino International, the water circulation tank at the zoo, the Charité high-rise, the Old Congress Hall or Teufelsberg, are always unpopulated in her work. One has hardly ever seen Berlin like this. This bare representation makes the city appear different.
