INSTALLATION VIEWS 

 

THE SCARECROW, 2020

Mixed media installation, dimensions variable

Square steel profiles, welding wire, metal rings, metal angles, metal clips, tent pegs, tent tensioning, storm protection, Contra H fabric,

velcro tape, stretch film, mirror film, spray paint, protective gloves, fencing mask, plastic raven, dahlia plants, solar lights, pebbles. 

 

Deviating from the functionality and purpose of the object itself ideas and contents connect with the term ‚scarecrow‘

which articulate aspects of being exposed, of being frightened up to the creepy.This potential is decisive for the installation.

THE SCARECROW – it is a sight trap, adapting the construction  of real scarecrows to model an artificial appearance: 

starting from the here and now, it would like to abduct the viewer into another world.
