Steffi Klenz exhibtions

Rostock-born photographer Steffi Klenz has a couple of exhibitions coming up in Glasgow next month which look well worth a visit. 'La Posa' (at the Goethe Institut, 1-26 Feb) explores the idea of the house as an architectural and visual metaphor, and is based on the abandoned Dorset village of Tyneham. Additionally, 'Nummianus' (at Street Level Photoworks, 30 Jan-27 Mar) explores ideas of displacement and the collapse of a sense of rootedness regarding the notion of place, and is based on boarded up, terraced houses in the Greater Manchester area.
