Descrizione Opera / Biografia
In the installation: ROOMS x2, a clearly defined space with transparent walls stands for our need for a protected inner space, which must nevertheless retain its transparency in order to enable an encounter with the You. When you step into the room, I, YOU, WE stand for the essential concepts of human communication as the essential basis of any interpersonal encounter.
. The open room is 3 x 2,5 m in the floor plan, wall parts made of transparent plastic plates hang on a stable iron frame. On these the earth paintings with I-YOU-WE in Greek, German and English are fixed, which are welded waterproof.
Me, you and We are painted with earth, earth oxides, pigments and glue on paper in mostly 10 layers. Each layer is partially lifted off again, so that the underlying colour and signs appear partially, like on old crumbling walls, on which each generation brushes its colour and signs over the layer of its predecessors.
In this way a very personal and at the same time generational history is told.
The wandering sun creates a second floor plan through its shadow play.
