It is a visual Interpretation of a Poem titled "Auf einmal steht es neben dir..."
written by
Joachim Ringelnatz


German original:
Und auf einmal steht es neben dir

Und auf einmal merkst du äußerlich:
Wieviel Kummer zu dir kam,
Wieviel Freundschaft leise von dir wich,
Alles Lachen von dir nahm.
Fragst verwundert in die Tage.
Doch die Tage hallen leer.
Dann verkümmert Deine Klage -
Du fragst niemanden mehr.
Lernst es endlich, dich zu fügen,
Von den Sorgen gezähmt.
Willst dich selber nicht belügen
Und erstickst es, was dich grämt.
Sinnlos, arm erscheint das Leben dir,
Längst zu lang ausgedehnt. ---
Und auf einmal --: Steht es neben dir,
An dich angelehnt --
Was?
Das, was du so lang ersehnt.


English version
And suddenly it stands next to you

And suddenly you notice outwardly:
How much sorrow came to you,
How much friendship quietly fell apart,
And took all laughter from you.
You keep wondering in the days.
But the days are echoing empty.
Then your grievances wither away -
You do not ask anymore.
You learn to give in,
Tamed by the worries.
You do not want to lie to yourself
And stifle what grieves you.
Meaningless, poor, life seems to you,
Long stretched, for far too long. ---
And all of a sudden -: It stands next to you,
Leaning on you -
What?
What you desired for so long.


version Francaise

Et soudain, c'est à côté de toi

Et soudain, tu remarque extérieurement:
Combien de chagrin t’est est venu,
Combien d'amitié cédait tranquillement,
Tous les rires sont pris de toi.
Etonnee tu demande dans les jours.
Mais les jours sont vides.
Alors ta plainte se termine -
Tu ne demande plus à personne.
Tu apprends à soumettre,
Apprivoisé par les soucis.
Tu ne veux pas te mentir
Et étouffe ce qui te chagrine.
Sans sense, et pauvre la vie te semble,
Etiré trop longtemps. ---
Et soudainement: c'est à côté de toi,
S'appuyant sur toi -
Quoi?
Ce que tu aspirais autant de temps.


A friend from Madagaskar provided me with a translation into her native language. I think Ringelnatz looking down from above would be very pleased to finally have found a way to make people over there read his text.
But I would like to keep that translation for me privately as the translator is a poet in her own, I consider her work a real gift. So, sorry to keep the best for me!

SAATCHI GALLERY - Saatchi Screen


One of my photographs with the title "urban/modern times - Lübeck" has been approved and will start appearing with other artists' works on screen at the 2nd floor of the
Saatchi Gallery, London, Kensington.
Unfortunately I cannot not go to London for personal reasons. I have not yet heard of two acquaintances who wanted to document the photograph in the gallery on their journey through Great Britain.
Two employees of the gallery however, independently confirmed that the picture in can be seen in the Saatchi Gallery, London, Kensington.

Maybe you at least can see it in London.
The work will remain in the loop as long as the screen is up. This is an ongoing project and an end date has not been decided yet.
