“Spatial arrangements” is an ongoing photographic interpretation of empty spaces and objects, which unintentionally become sculptures within our cities. The clean geometric forms of these unobserved spaces seem without personality, but when the abstract geometry of a wall of bricks, an industrial wasteland or an empty cinema are absent of the expected human activity, they become estranged from their purpose, and when photographed, are transformed into vibrant and pristine compositions of abstract and geometric shapes.
Sander Meisner walks through the city at night, without a predestined plan he searches trough the lesser defined areas of cities to explore and investigate these areas and the buildings in them. His work is highly dependent on the geometrical and spatial compositions he makes with the dark and the light, which he uses to create clean and a clear division of planes in his photographs. He uses these planes of light and shadow in such a way that certain parts of buildings are isolated from their surroundings.
In this way he manages to create (semi-) abstract compositions in recognizable objects and buildings. In total abstraction there is no reference left to anything recognizable, but Sander Meisner manages to find a sublime balance in which the viewer can look at a concrete subject, but can also let the eye wonder away from the object and become exalted by what remains: shape and color.
