Betreten auf eigene Gefahr #2


The art installation, an absurd object, attempting to install a third level, yet practically impracticable for lack of sufficient height, questions its own status, offering an elevated view in all directions, notably towards the back room of the gallery. The extension of the staircase provokes the desire to climb. In doing so, one wonders where are we going? why are we going up there? Is it really stable? I wanted the work of art to be a kind of metaphor for our society, in which we always want to go higher! But Icarus burnt his wings, the Tower of Babel fell, and here we hit our heads if we are not careful.
