Back on Tuesday

Dresden is celebrating the 8th edition of “Ostrale – Internationale Ausstellung zeitgenössischer Künste”, and I was asked to deliver an in situ work right at the entrance of this huge show at the old (and famous) slaugtherhouse. I did use tape again – red tape, to be precise.

The piece covers about 70 square meters. It shows a young lady, ornamental elements and a “writing on the wall” (which suggests that the artist might have vanished before completion). I could have called it “Selbstbildnis mit Auerhahn” (“Self portrait with grouse”), which would have been kind of correct. But I thought I should place emphasis on the text part. The display tag now says “Back on Tuesday”.
