Homage to Inger Christensen
The Erich Kästner House of Literature, Dresden
The octagonal prism of the microlightsculpture, a homage to the Danish poet Inger Christensen, symbolises with its geometry the physical elements of nature: sky, earth, fire, water, wind, thunder, lake and mountain. Nuances of light and shadow, space and surface can be experienced. The multi-layered play with perspectives and the dissolution of boundaries sensitises the viewer to an intensive optical experience. The visual labyrinth of inner and outer world points to relations between micro and macro, to the polarity of unknowability and readability of art and the world. In daylight, the object can be experienced multidimensionally in dialogue with the movement of the sun as a cast shadow, in darkness with artificial light from the core: inside and outside, below and above are interchanged.
