LARGER THAN LIFE
2018



installation view Haus für Kunst Uri, 7 collages of the series larger than life
2018, a series of 11 collages, fragments from magazines, different formats within 28 × 20 cm
right: Future fury, 2018, acrylics on cotton, 180 x 130 cm

The collages, cut-out fragments from magazines, have been created since 2016, always grouped in series. They are actual pictorial and thinking factories. Surreal and fantastic associative spaces literally turn conventional perspectives upside down. A favorite quote of the artist couple originates from William S. Burroughs:
Cut-ups are for everybody, anybody can make cut-ups

Die Collagen, ausgeschnittene Fragmente aus Magazinen, entstehen seit 2016, stets in Werkreihen gruppiert. Sie sind eigentliche Bild- und Denkfabriken. Surreale und fantastische Assoziationsräume stellen herkömmliche Sichtweisen buchstäblich auf den Kopf. Ein Lieblingszitat des Künstlerpaares stammt von William S. Burroughs:
Cut-ups are for everybody, anybody can make cut-ups
