The past stealing ballast of this light 
that still shines through to places unknown,
ruins that a nation carries in its heart,
putting more shadow in the shadows,
shattering a mirror to stare at ghosts."- Drenched Co.

Comment:  "There are shadows in Amelie's work, dark clouds that spread through her paintings, overcoming them, rising as though from some scene of an unatoned crime, filled with ghosts and spectres that do not die their own death. As a 'Nachgeborenen', perhaps Amelie is introducing us to the impossibility of mourning, leaving us with bottles of ether and somewhere in a place between consciousness and unconsciousness, filled with immovable obstacles to repentance and salvation. Or perhaps she is telling us about the traumatising loss of innocence and something  that may inaugurate the work of mourning. Perhaps Amelie is suggesting this through the example of Mann's hero in Doktor Faustus, by dropping harmony and counterpoint and a legacy that is univocal and given, and assembling her dark montages of memories in the rhythm of various painterly traditions, always equally fluid and disjointed.  Either that or Amelie is telling us that art is incurably sick and impotent against the monsters in us, foretelling perhaps a dark coming. I found her installation/sculpture especially interesting and revealing." - FaSa
