Name Artist: DIRK RAULF,
Title: „HEADLIGHT“, 2022
Bridge at Lippertor
From 2020 to 2022 Dirk Raulf realized as "artist in residence" the comprehensive project "heimat.kunden" in his native city of Lippstadt. The finale was "headlight", a searchlight derived from maritime technology, which sweeps across the surface of the water as if by chance, evoking surprising, often multiple reflections and associations of tracking, searching, controlling, tracing, illuminating, penetrating, marking.
"headlight" sets a sign that stands for the entire heimat.kunden project, in which Raulf has attempted to document what he encountered in Lippstadt, what he became aware of, what was reported to him and passed on to him, what he researched, conjectured, and remembered - a search movement and research in the city of his origin and on the multifaceted, abysmal subject of "Heimat".
