A love triangle, collected views of a strange carrier of meaning, houses, walls, streets, doors, cars, a portrait of a city or the cumbersome documentation of paths taken. Where these led and how they were trodden remains unclear. Whether following a trail, searching, researching or wandering aimlessly and finding by chance, whether conscientiously noting as a (self-proclaimed) surveyor or picking up randomly as a collector, in the end there are 360 ​​views presented by Peter Schreiner to round off the work group The Black Triangle full way to unlock. This is a stock of images that is determined in all its parts by the eponymous figure. And that’s all that can be said for sure about it.

About the Artist
The ties between a certain event and its interpretation, between historiography and poetry are at the center of Peter Schreiner’s artistic practice. The event itself, which is provided by historical meaning only by its transformation into language and its embedment into narration, forms the starting point as well as the center of Peter Schreiner’s artistic approach.
