The façade is the visible face of a building, determining its character. Oda Pälmke’s collection of pictures shows that the most expressive sides of houses are not always those that were originally designed as façades. Seemingly unspectacular walls can have a strong appeal and temporary modifications can also manifest qualities that could not have been designed better. The sculptural compositions of freestanding fire walls or of secondary sides of buildings entice the viewer to contemplate the selected pairs of pictures. Viewing what is marginal or unfinished as an asset opens up a wealth of possibilities in every respect.
