Empyrium, 2021, space-related installation, ink, zinc tubs, adhesive tape, cord, in: like in heaven…, galerie weisser elefant, Berlin, 17. 4. – 15. 5. 2021

The room installation deals with the loss of what is believed to be certain.For centuries the idea of ​​salvation was the basis for the life of most people in Europe.The room installation shows the reflection of the sky in a basin with blue ink and the reflection of an ink quotation from the person of Dante from Botticelli's Dante-cycle. Dante is shown in a phase of ascending crossing of paradise.He is alone and points to the Newtonian planetary constellation.The further you turn in the exhibition space, the more the space “breaks down” into fractals into “nothing”.
