The sudden threat to our hitherto orderly existence by the worldwide pandemic “Covid 19” inspired me to create a new series of works.
We humans have the mistaken belief that we can keep everything under control. And this worldwide crisis – caused by a single-celled organism invisible to the human eye – turns our entire existence upside down. Suddenly we are made aware that nothing in this world grows infinitely – not even our economy, of which we have always assumed that it will. We become painfully aware that the security we have created is only an illusion. We are confronted with the fact that our previous interpersonal, ecological and economic values should be urgently reconsidered if we do not want our entire existence to be thrown off balance.
All this led me to the present series of works “Disbalance”.
