Frauke Materlik's projects have been exhibited in both Germany and Scandinavia. As well as working with sculpture and installation, she also engages with photography and performance. The keywords for many of her projects are loneliness, anonymity, neighbourhoods and the border between reality and fiction.

Frauke creates environments, referring to them as dreamscapes, fictional landscapes between materiality and immateriality. 

Most of her work is ephemeral and created within a specific space.
