Fabian Gatermann's interests are everyday materials with which he breaks boundaries and explores new, surprising possibilities.Gatermann has already worked with light, sugar, sandpaper, slide frames and body fluids. Through context shifts and novel approaches, he creates poetic spaces, poses questions and opens up perspectives.Through his settlements he makes connections, structures and narrations visible, which he bundles in his objects as an essence.
