“Presented in the intimate format of a small book, my collages are organic geometric abstractions composed from digital photographic fragments, collected mostly from the residential streets of Berlin. They are a way to sculpt the city, combining moments and interlacing shapes with a playful sense of possibility. Working quickly and without precision, I seek out accidental combinations and create a sense of the hand even in the digital. Cutting up and rearranging my immediate reality, I create unexpected combinations and overlaps of spaces outside of the order of city grids, and everyday routines of home and work. Collage for me is the potential in the combination of difference, but also a form of reduction and exclusion, and through it I preserve glimpses of unexpected beauty within the mass of experience in the city. “ — Julie Beugin, February 2018
