Sinopale 6, “Transposition
curator: Nike Bätzner

Frederking builds hybrid objects made out of materials he found in a closed down glassworks near Sinop Old Glass Factory. The “unidentified objects” operate through the use of optical effects like magnification, deformation and layering. The information of the under glass presented cut outs of local newspapers, travel brochures, and lettering ornaments become alienated and appear vague and unreal at the same time. They are ‘chamber of wonder’-pieces on which speculations on a variety of grounds can be established.
