Tabula rasa, Plaster / Objects / Installation (2020)

"Tabula rasa" invites the viewer to fundamentally deal with human culture - human consciousness as part and counterpart of a natural system. The work shows plaster casts of clothes scattered on a lawn. The objects look like exposed remains and are partly covered with earth. Lying down and standing, the plaster pieces develop a life of their own and trigger chains of associations in the viewer. They remind us of archaeological finds or plaster casts of fossils. At the same time, familiar human forms can be guessed at, in which individual physiological and cultural information of the wearer is stored. The objects want to question the truth content of given social categories. Especially with regard to current social transformation processes, which turn previous values upside down, the question arises: What will our new image of human kind look like?
