Large-format reproductions of tourist attractions from the Baltic seaside resort of Eckernförde are the starting point for Matthias Klos’s work Heringshund. Old town, harbour facilities, beach and surroundings of the Baltic seaside resort appear on the photographs in rich colours in sunshine and blue sky, or in nostalgic black and white. The reproductions can be found in supermarkets and shopping arcades in the small town, sometimes in the immediate vicinity of their real locations. The artist documented these subjects, which are located between shelves, on emergency exits, in gastro zones and entrance areas.

Heringshund was created in 2018 as part of a scholarship from the state of Schleswig-Holstein. The writings of Wilhelm Lehmann and Lorenz von Stein, both closely associated with the city, gave the impetus to take a closer look at touristic imagery as a product and its exploitation. This led to an engagement with the topic of economized image and gaze regimes, linked to the issue of image and replica.
