IN FOUR LINES

2004

plaster, 70 cm each    

forty garden gnomes made form plaster, set in four rows, facing the corner of the gallery

likable, kitsch objects, by the way in which they are set (like a military group) and even more by the title of the work evoke associations of violence

the title additionally emphasizes the historical and social context connected with the problematic of the interpretation of history

questioning the topics of tragedy and violence that are through various manipulations and interpretations, either political or artistic, brought on the verge of kitsch
