Title: Eva Mutter / the suppressed female human soul (2013)
Material: wood, audio and light installation.
Eva Mutter is an artwork that reminds us of a deeply hidden quality in human beings – an element that is buried by a patriarchal tradition, which still exerts influence on the inner being of modern man. But instead of showing the viewer the origin of this suppression at a spiritual level, the history of which goes back to the Old Testament, what I actually want to do is invite the viewer to turn inwards for a moment and to investigate whether this installation awakens something inside of him- or herself, and then to follow that. Art in this sense is a multidimensional experience of emotion, intuition and reflection, and not a linear understanding of a story written by the artist.
