Im Jahre 1980 wurde diese kleine italienische Gemeinde im Süden Italiens, von einem schrecklichen Erbeeben heimgesucht. Seitdem rollt hier keine Kugel mehr, denn die Einwohner verließen diesen malerischen Ort und kehrten nie wieder zurück.
In der Serie Sentimentale zeige ich euch Fotografien aus diesem und noch vielen weiteren Geisterorten in Italien.
Mixed paints on wood.
The wood has turned a bit yellow, I like it this way.
Last night I opend a cardboard box I got from my shared studio that I gave up some years ago. It was in the way and after pushing it from one room to then next for 10 weeks I made a cut of this game.
Inside the box were paintings on wood and on canvas I made in winter 2003/2004 for 2 art shows at the WuWei Tai Chi Schools in Hamburg and Bremen.
I was never really happy with that shows, beside much work they were extremly expensive - I needed 2 friends for help from Munich for 2 weeks, rent a big car and booked places where we could stay.
And later the school owner Jan made one video about my tai chi work (Universe) he bought in 2003 before the shows and in the video told it was a gift from me to the school. Because he helped and supported me so much and what a great guy he was to get me to paint again🤔
I did not rember that he did that. I had in 2003 nine month I lived from selling martial art works and had not so much power left at the time he asked for 2 shows at the same time and only 6 month left to work on it. Needed around 35 paintings for this events. That was it.
