Artwork for the 7th Art Biennale 2017 Beijing

The perception of man, the perception of our counterpart constantly changes. Today, more than ever, it is characterized by a superficial assessment. A deeper approach with the other often only takes place in fragments. The complex, multi- layered essence of man dissolves in this perception.

Nine layers of fine silk take the image of a human, becoming identifiable in its depth in a direct frontal confrontation with this sculpture. If the observer moves out of the central observation axis and around the portrait, the latter dissolves into translucent planes, which have only a restricted view of the figure.

Silk, monochrome printed, with dissolved out layers of a portrait, clamped in a wooden frame, freely hung above the ground, form a cube with an edge lenght of about 1.50 m. Translucently photography disintegrates and emancipate from its one-dimensionality into a multi-layered spatiality.
