Mariella Mosler has been an established name in the international art scene at least since her participation in documenta X. As part of the exhibition series "Standpunkt", Mosler will present one of the sand pieces that are characteristic for her oeuvre. With painstaking meticulousness and patience she creates floor works that not only reflect the form of the particular space but are also limited to the duration of the exhibition.
Mariella Mosler's second installation piece also relates to the presentation
space. It represents a new development in the artist's oeuvre: for
the first time she will present a mirror piece as an integrative element
between the viewer, the space, the neighbouring sand piece and the
architecture visible through the windows. This artistic undertaking
is carried out to the same degree of perfection and demands an equally
large investment of time, with the result that our fast-moving times
seem to be temporarily suspended. The auratic presence of both works
invites the viewer to pause and to experiment with different viewing
perspectives. The exhibition is supported by Glaserei & Studio
für angewandte Glaskunst GmbH, Hamburg.
