About The Artwork

Some time ago on my way into the city I photographed a mosque building project. A picture of a minaret in scaffolds was the starting point for the Double Cross work. Double Cross plays with architectural elements and the work consists of 3 parts: a diptych of two digital printed canvasses and a card game called Kabal. The cross forms are designed in a heraldic way reminiscent of flags, nations and power. The minarets in the scaffolds are configured in the form of Saint Andrew’s cross (Crux decussata). The 2 extended black cross formations on the white canvases together form a double cross. Double Cross thematizes the meeting between religious cultural traditions in the form of architectural formulations. 2 crosses in vertical position can also refer to the viking symbol Inguz. Inguz is an ancient rune symbol that can be interpreted as a symbol for isolation or separation. Inguz creates a space or place where a migration process to a higher state can occur. In our secular society we may sometimes have lost our religious compass and feel that this space might be kind of missing. And we seem to lose our direction in the void between liberating technology and an increasingly threatening future. Double Cross invites to a process of divination and that of gaining insight by reading the signs. As a visitor you have the possibility to interact by playing the Double Cross solitaire game. You have to try to match the cards by colour, symbol and value through a series of moves from one place to another according to the solitaire rules. This part has the title “Kabal”and invites to “cross exam” the religious awareness surrounding the artwork as a solitary exercise.
