The work of Ulrike Biets challenges the viewer to enter a very personal yet abstract world. Reality is deprived of its original content and context, and narrative structures and meaning are abstracted from the image. The ordinary transforms into something absurd and gets a sense of timelessness, which leaves the viewer behind with a feeling of recognition and detachment at the same time. Biets her work is often described as honest and raw, but uncanny at the same time. A 'surreal realism' in which the borderline between fiction and reality fades.
