"Every woman has 1 staircase" is a completely absurd picture title that demonstratively experiences a sense of reality through the draftswoman Romane Holderried-Kaesdorf. "My characters do nothing special, just something different," she describes her motivation, which is located far from logic and experience. Residing in Biberach all her life, she did not care about styles and currents, even if the socio-critically cheeky note of a George Grosz flowed into her caricature-like figurations and the literature of Samuel Beckett and Eugène Ionesco exerted a fascination on her. The everyday absurd was her main theme - the rehearsal of senseless rituals, the failure of the most normal actions, instructions for the use of weird ideas. The comedy is never at the expense of humanity, but at the expense of a dehumanized society and ideological delusion. Also, the seemingly sketchy works are always carefully thought out. "I don't speak of composition, I speak much more of construction. Constructed images."
