flugs (2018), photographs cut and sewn, silk, thread, string, wall colour, 500 cm x 285 cm
In suspense, between the air and the earth. A little point of silence, of protection, offering the possibility of take off. Countless photographs were cut into pieces and then stuck together again. Turned towards the world. The artist's input overcomes political narrow–mindedness. The work of art: an opportunity to find one's place as an individual, to find out one's position in history (photographs from historical portraits), living conditions (piecework by cutting and sewing the photos), nature (trees, light).
