Thanks for the music

Installation: mixed-media images on secondhand Lp sleeves signed, old vinyl music player, light letters, and purpurin (2017).

Self-created LP sleeves that visualize different facets of the iconic rockstar David Bowie and at the same time represent a kind of human stereotype and an alter-ego.
The work contains an autobiographical background that remarks on the role of the artist as a narrator, interpreter, and viewer:

“Similar to the novel “The portrait of Dorian Gray” in which a portrait of a face makes a person young and alive, I painted numerous David Bowies portraits to express my kindness & best wishes towards an old friend, which actually reminds me to David Bowie (1962-2016) ; to keep the friendship alive and to whish him good health and joy in life”.

The installation took part in the first phase of the Sihlhalle (hosted by David Schildknecht).
