A photographic documentation of the process involved in building the A4 Arts Foundation, in the life of its neighbourhood.


Dorothee Kreutzfeldt engages in an open-ended and interdisciplinary inquiry into the area surrounding 23 Buitenkant. Textual, visual and material references are gathered as sketches and photographs are collaged and photocopied alongside this process to form a loose document. Architectural ornaments and facades of the built environment intersect with the protrusions and erosions created through use by people, plants or other organic agents - allowing ditches dug for cables to sit alongside court rosters and self-seeded palm trees.

In combination, Kreutzfeldt’s work performs a complex portrait of the building and its surrounds. Photographic documentation of the mural and the additional collected documents become the publication 'Landing Above'.
