NO SHOES TO DANCE WITH |  The images I create are my own way of communicating. The objects in my imaginary function as metaphors for my emotions and the circumstances that are significant in my life, but I want to leave space, literally and figuratively, for personal associations. They should invite the viewer to connect them with their own memories . As a young girl, I started dancing, I was fascinated by the beautiful life as ballerina, dreaming of a life full of mystery and fascination. At the age of 16 I had to decide if I wanted finish school or if I want to become a professional dancer. I decided to finish school. I knew already back then, that my career as a dancer would be over at the age of 30. The older I got, the more I realized that the actual lived stereotype in the self chosen gilded cage in the theater retrieves disillusioning banalities and routines as well as psychic hyperesthesia due to power full and deep passions. My work „ No shoes to dance with“ is about the twilight zone of the in general romantic stereotype of Ballet dancers at the theatre. The photographed protagonists are involved in their particular action, at the moment, where they are in between their real life and their stage life, which makes it easy to read our own stories into the pictures. www.katharinazeitler.com
