Printed and always identical. The principle of technical reproducibility makes it possible. In this project, my catalog “Name” becomes the blank, the starting material. The end becomes the beginning of entirely new ideas. The brochure comprising illustrations of bodies becomes the body, upon which one can encroach, which can be injured, decorated and designed. Real nudes, which, in this format, turn the copy into a work of its own. Catalog is composed of various sub-projects. Skulp / Sketchbook / Ink / Explode (work in progress)
Scratching, burning, staining. Skin as medium of alteration. The catalog as sculpture. My catalog “Name” from 2016 depicts partial excerpts of the human body. As a block of paper, in this work it is the starting material for my sculptural interventions. Deeper-lying layers are touched by means of burning and abrading. Eyes move through gaps or disappear entirely. Exposed deep structures and superficialscratch marks open the closed system Body. The two-dimensional image becomes a three-dimensional structure. The associative space is expanded into the depth. Husk-like, mutilated, shot. These encroachments appear as an attack on human intactness and, alongside the spatial, lend the image a temporal dimension. A story arises, which, anchored spatially in the brochure, reflects the aggression of the intervention.
