(Conversion of a quote by writer Douglas Adams)
A constellation of twenty-three x twenty-three = 529 half-spheres on three by three meters wall surface. To the right and left of this central constellation hang two works of 32x32 cm.
Each element of homemade recycled paper is executed like a classic multi-layered monochrome. The blacks of several layers of groated coal and soot, the reds with homemade groated iron ore. The left work shows the plan of the hanging, ink on raster paper, while the right photographically shows the artist while creating the same plan, fine art print on laid paper. Of Joseph Kosuth’s everyday trinity of word, image and cause, becomes a creative unity of work, idea and artist. The unit, however, is of lesser duration, because the spheres are deliberately hung with inferior tape, so that they gradually fall off like ripe fruit, turn into an ephemeral installation that leaves the formalist language of the seventies and independently frees itself from the obscured, stringent , the mathematical plan of the artist, as an allegory of change, the constant renewal in art, transition into an unfathomable creative future.
