Bettina Carl is primarily a draftswoman, but in installations she also works with photos, texts and objects. "I am interested in contradictions, detours, and superimpositions; I try to reconstruct figures of thought and perception that are as fleeting as they are complex - memory structures that are formed beyond a linear syntactic order. Every painting must reach a certain balance in order to exist, in order to be seen. In my works, however, this balance remains tense: a temporary pause of restless, highly vivid parts that urge to dissolve and reorder themselves." The series of lithographs that Bettina Carl created for the current edition of the VFO is part of her work group The Locals. Like other identity features, 'native' is an attribute that is primarily attributed to us by others, in the view from outside. Bettina Carl's 'Locals' are a collection of Central European prototypes: They often resemble monkeys, have their pets or D+G sunglasses with them, and stand around fearfully or angrily, usually quite alone, in the landscape.
