Arakawa-ku is the name of a district in Tokyo, an area, where Claudia Larcher was working and living for six month. Many of those little single-family dwellings which - built on the narrowest space and tiny properties – line up in often strange architectural forms, with only few centimetres of interspace, can be found here. In the photo series of the same name Claudia Larcher isolates single buildings and exposes thus their forms, which appear mostly weird to our eyes. The connecting formal element in this set of photographs of different formats is only the horizontal line which allows an anchorage of the gaze instead of a horizon.
