Steel prop, wooden blocks and pedestals
Solo show “Massenanziehung” at Sihlhalle, Zürich, 19.10.2018 - 18.11.2018
The gravitational attraction describes the effect, by which all bodies attract each other due to their masses. Situated in the center of the narrow space, a construction steel prop stands up against the force of attraction between the earth and the ceiling of the room. If one forgot the surrounding walls, it would only be this one steel prop that would prevent the collapse of the ceiling. The gigantic dimensions of the earth become visible: its mass is so enormous that it holds a tight grip on everything that exists around us. At the same time, the one steel prop reflects the strength of people to carve out a place for themselves in this immensity.
