STUDIO CHRISTOPH SAGEL
PERSONAL CONTENT by Christoph Sagel and Matylda Krzykowski Initiated and photographed.
An ongoing project, introduced at Depot Basel’s Craft & Scenography Composition is an important element of design. It is the placement or arrangement of visual elements or ingredients, which enables the objects in it to exist at all – to find a balance between emptiness and the use of space.
"Still-life photographer Christoph Sagel and project initiator Matylda Krzykowski were introduced by a mutual acquaintance. Their joint understanding and respect for composition lead them to a collaboration. Sagel had been planning to use a specific white space of exactly 2 x 2 m for quite some time. Together with Krzykowski, he developed a concept with the name ‘Personal Content’, an initiated and photographed project where designers presented their work, their subjective scenography and themselves in the same space."
For this occasion, Sagel and Krzykowski visited 13 designers in their studios and placed the 2 x 2 m stage in their surroundings. They introduced each designer to a process of creation within structures, which developed an appreciation of scenographic structure. This was done through each designer making sense of the relationships between the design project they presented, the space, the light and all of the surroundings.
All projects are specially made for Depot Basel’s Craft & Scenography presentation.
