The POLAROID PAINTINGS can be understood as an imprint but also a memento of the past, complemented by the medium of photography. They recall a moment when the disappearance from the market of media harbouring a wealth of cultural information and meanings prophesied the end of their very existence. More omnipresent than ever in the nuances of our everyday lives, the polaroid is resisting its industrial disappearance. To this day it preserves the momen¬tary memories of entire generations, compressed into its coloured rectangular form. On the level of the image itself, however, Wohnseifer’s POLAROID PAINTINGS actually challenge their own functional purpose as a social and aesthetic means of documenting (everyday) reality: they present the moment that gave rise to the image through a failed depiction.
