The title “I can´t go there no more” expresses the certainty that something has changed.New experiences bring change, which the human cannot resist. The moral conflict in balancing and doubting new phases of life are the origin for these photographs. The pictures speak a language of vulnerability – and the individual can admit this to themselves.
Nature is a recurring motive in the photography of Matthias Falco Walther. Early on he came in contact with it, in the garden of his childhood home. Since this garden no longer exist, he is driven by these memories and the desire for such a place. Nature is a place where change of circumstances is most visual – and the influence by man is only very limited. No matter what decision we choose today, the encounter of life and death in nature will take its course.
Memories, expectations, self-reflection, uncertainty, vulnerability, nature: These are the big topics that “I can´t go there no more” deals with, when it captures the decision-making process of leaving home for Canada.
Mostly asking, often suggesting, but never definitively answering, the pictures of the photography series stand for itself as well as a superordinate searching and discovering, questioning and answering, forgetting and remembering. In the present moment, the life awareness of the artist is in a state between the thirst for action and doubt in a certainty, in a statement: I can’t go there no more.
