– Von Angesicht zu Angesicht
The face as a stage, a bust as a canvas. Inanimate is brought to life and enters into interaction. Between observing and being observed. Between classic and modern. Between empathy or antipathy.
In the multimedia installation Von Angesicht zu Angesicht - ein ambivalentes Selbstbild , the possibilities of the self-portrait are experimented with. By linking two self-portraits - plastic imprint and moving image - an interplay between dialogue and trialogue is created. Bystanders inevitably become observers or unconsciously direct communication partners. The closeness to reality of the works is intended to evoke conflicting emotions. Between fascination and discomfort. Known and unknown at the same time - ambivalent.
