“Intermezzo” (complexe 10)

  • Exhibited in the Gallery Felix Ringel, Düsseldorf, 2008

 

Picture overview

 

Humankind is an “intermezzo” in nature’s framework. It disappears in the nihilistic white space. The subsequent attempt to regain it becomes a Sisyphean task marked with a touch of irony; – depending on its efforts, the originally pure white character, receives symbols for pain, desperation, desire, hope, fear, love, hate and melancholy painted on its body. With his increasingly diversified level of experience and these respective visible “imprints”, humankind is less and less able to “return to nature”.


The sequence of images is based around a formal middle axis. The human “intermezzo” takes place in the middle between horizontally mirrored images of nature.
