Untitled // 2011
A few photos from ysterdays continually changing collage. Working on A0 means i have to guess how something looks when I put it up and judge it when I step back, so it takes much longer. Maybe its the source material I’m working with, but I don’t think the collages are as successful on this scale. Through the necessities of working larger it seem to have become over worked and chaotic.
Franz Erhard Walther (b. 1939 in Fulda, Germany), Großes Stoffbuch (Large Cloth Book (1969), on display at the Hamburger Bahnhof in Berlin, as part of the exhibition “Body Pressure: Sculpture since the 1960s" (25 May 2013 - 12 January 2014).
The 68-page cloth book includes instructions for actions - such as those shown in the photos above - and when the work was first displayed viewers were allowed to play out the book’s directives, becoming parts of the sculpture themselves.
