About The Artwork

The project “B.O.D.Y. – hidden codes” was developed from a preceding project “B.O.D.Y.” (1989 through 2010) and is not yet concluded. The first part of the work I conceived and exhibited in a private apartment (or semi-public space) in Venice in 2011. I coded biological symbols such as breathing, heartbeat, voices and others in five sounds, the Sino-Japanese character „心(heart)“ and the characters for the word „hear/ear“ as well as Photographs of a doubled body are on the wall, creating a poetic space around the themes of body and time. These works are to be exhibited in a private apartment in which someone lives – it should be a private and inhabited space. Further works from “B.O.D.Y. – hidden codes” comprise the optical and acoustic realms of the theme “body – presence and absence in present-day society”. I will conceive the spatial setting of the new works from “B.O.D.Y. – hidden codes” (2012) as a common room to be transformed into an exhibition space. With the works, I seek to create a private space of mutual and of sharing in a public space. „Realism is relative, determined by the system of representation standard for a given culture or person at a given time“ – Nelson Goodman
