Metamorphosis – Objects of Clay 2016
The egg in the centre, resting in itself, symbolizes the ego; a self-portrait.
An individual is surrounded by »fallen eggs«, representing physical and spiritual encounters. On life’s at once sensitive and resistant skin, they leave behind
a number of different impressions and traces, both invisible and visible.
The traces materialize as an essential, stabilizing life substance, down
to the bone. You »feel it in your bones« – so goes the well-known expression
for this perception and feeling.
These objects are presented on a neutral/transparent table that does
not influence the viewing experience. The viewer should be able to come
very close to the objects so as to get a sense of their structure, but
without touching them.
