Kunstverein Familie Montez, Frankfurt/Main
The silent space before the idea
A 48 sqm corner area will be covered with green artificial turf. By means of a vertical, semi-transparent plastic tarpaulin, an inner and outer field will be marked, which allows access and viewing from both sides of the wall.
The tarpaulin simultaneously functions as a projection screen between imagination and reality – illusion and hallucination. It can also be used as a projection screen for the other participating artists. Within the walk-in space cell, a horizontally aligned, slightly inclined metal tube floats at eye level – similar to a targeting lance – at the end of which a burning LED torch is integrated. It is a tool, agent, a direction and a will element.
A fan in front of the foil ensures movement.
The installation visualizes the special moment before the action and can be read as a “prenatal“ form of Cervantes‘ space of thought or intention.
