If I Were Buried at a Street Corner is a short film about looking and seeing again – on which the experience of beauty in everyday life is often based. It was shot during an artist’s residency in Frankfurt am Main, where an abandoned tombstone provided the starting point for the observation of an unfamiliar setting. The city appears as an empty landscape, seen from an outsider’s perspective. The hierarchy, utility and logic of the surroundings are sidelined and monuments can be found in the backyard. With thanks for the inspiration to Mr. and Mrs. Dreher.
