Kai Pfeiffer's "urban elphes" reaches for the borders of what could still be considered "storytelling". Without words, using graphic means exclusively, to build narrative sequences. And these sequences ask the meandering question: What is it, that really inhabits our urban areas? and are we to be shure what this garden of concrete and bricks seamingly is made of? Is it really just us and our world of things, conveniently constructed out of reliable combinations of molecules?
Or is there more? Is something other living between the cracks? Something which knows that walls can be soft?
Kai Pfeiffer, known also for his works in comics as journalism, has embarked on a different kind of reportage here. All drawn as seen inside outside.
