To mark the port’s 55th anniversary, we invited artists from the region and abroad to interpret their local ports through photography, installation art, painting, video art, sound art, graffiti art and graphic art.
To mark our 55th anniversary, we invited ten local artists to produce a contemporary portrayal of the port. They did so using photography, illustration, installation art, painting, video art and sound art. Graffiti art and graphic art further add to the diversity of genres.
Graphic art / installation art
„Everything has a sort of double meaning for me, there’s the ordinary everyday meaning of things, and the imaginary meaning about it all, and I wanted to bring these things together.“ (Stanley Spencer)
Installation art / sound art
The question of how sound is created in the first instance gave rise to the core concept and leitmotif of his work, namely that movement, including touch, is the essential source of sound. 3 cymbals constitute locations of the sound of a “port melody”
Photography / artistic image manipulation
“Ports are fascinatingly ambivalent industrial landscapes. On the one hand, globally connective, indispensable locations for the exchange of goods between cities, countries and continents, and for many people a source of fascination. On the other, burdened with all the problems associated with the destruction of nature, pollution of the environment, noise nuisance for the nearby residents, etc.My works aim to capture and express this ambivalence.”
“What you see is what I saw.”
“My pictures are a mosaic of close-ups and snapshots. My aim is to view the familiar in a new way and to draw attention to the overlooked. I find it pleasing how the coloured areas form a picture, a story. I will present my view of the port in several pictures – as a whole and in the form of details and close-ups.”
“For the last 11 years, I have had a studio in the freight centre of the port of Trier. My view each day through the windows of my studio onto the tracks and passing freight trains is symbolic of mobility, dynamism and globalization. The port is not limited to the quay on the river Moselle: it also takes in the surrounding infrastructure, a mixture of functional buildings and wild greenery that refuses to be tamed by fences. This terrain is diverse and conflicted, and traces of it can be found in many of my works.”
“The atmosphere of a port, no matter how industrial, is ultimately dominated by the mood of the water.”
“My artistic contribution to ‘AHOI’ is not a work in its own right, but accompaniment of the other artists during the creative process. Inspired by the differences in their character and approach to the topic, I have created different images which record the process of the works’ creation in a photographic sketchbook.”
Urban artist / graffiti art
“My goal in the exhibition is to merge the topics of graffiti and the port. They arouse similar emotions and associations in us, both being characterized by an urban, dark and slightly mysterious atmosphere. My aim is to harness these emotions and convey them in my work.”
