in:Spiele im Park, cat. Villa Schöningen, 2011


Suddenly, there stands a chimney next to the newly restored Villa Schöningen! It is unfinished and part of the construction site. A small sign is the only indication that the chimney is a piece of art: »Unauthorized entry prohibited, work will continue tomorrow«. This sign demonstrates the illusion of progress and completion, something that will never be achieved. The chimney is a reflection of art. A process that always continues and which never ends.
