A triangular story, collected views of a strange signifier, houses, walls, streets, doors, cars, the portrait of a city, or the lengthy and laborious documentation of paths once travelled. Where those paths led to, and how they were travelled, re-mains unclear. Whether he was following a trail, searching, exploring or wandering aimlessly and accidentally finding, whether a (self-appointed) land surveyor conscien-tiously jotting down his notes or a collector randomly gathering specimens, ultimate-ly Peter Schreiner chose to present 360 views in order to make the work group The Black Triangle fully accessible. It is a picture inventory determined in all its parts by the titular figure. And that’s all that can be said about it with any certainty.
