"Mathias Grate’s photographs are less moments of touching down in time than keystrokes in an ongoing script of compressed experience. They seem to be drawn from a journey in the same unfamiliar landscape, a zone (to use a Tarkovskian association) which borders, on the one side, on everyday life and on the other on all that is timeless, other-worldly. (...) The subjects in this series from the zone could provoke grief. But they have been so gently developed (exposed feels like far too brutal a word) that, instead, they are comforting. Exhibited one after the other on a wall they form a short film of still images on the subject of tenderness. On the subject of that which takes place between the words."
