Cuers is inspired by Franz Kafka’s “The trial” and takes the audience on a fleeting, meandering journey through different public sites and waiting areas. Domke is interested in the overlaying of the private and the public and the merging to a timeless sphere. Transit areas on airports morph into refugee camps, office corridors become elderly homes and cues in front of security measures end up in a post-office overflooding with parcels. Time and space is dissolved in kaleidoscopic images, emphasizing on the physical and mental struggle to adjust to anonymous environments. Cuers seeks to create a fictional abstraction through subversion of the familiar.
