Sinje Dillenkofer stages situations that, when viewed alone, resemble everyday sceneries. However, she always explores a meta-level, which is related to experiences, but also to cultural-historical contexts - and also involves the viewer's horizon of expectations as well as feelings. The photo pair "Spreads - Flamingo 10", which shows a blossoming tree on the one hand and a flamingo on the other, can easily be thought of together via the pink tone, but it is only in the viewer's mind that a story also develops: as if the simple context of each partial image experiences a narrative in the interplay. Beyond the analogies of color, the symbolic level is also fascinating: the spring-like bloom fits the old image of the flamingo as the embodiment of the phoenix, epitome of rebirth or resurrection.
