Tanja Selzer transfers media images as well as her own photos and film stills onto the plain of painting. The original context of the images remains hidden, thus opening up an ambiguous field of associations. The real world appears transformed into an often merely fragmentary space. The scenes lure us into an indistinct world outside known society, whose inhabitants apparently prefer to remain among themselves; other scenes reveal fateful moments that defy conscious control and concrete classification.
