Local Solutions with Intergalactic Dimensions



With his Form Change Project the artist wants to explore the possibilities of making works of art that, in one way or another, change forms.

An extraterrestrial creature sits on a pedestal ; a photograph shows him naked, untouched. Visitors are invited to stick bandaids on him in random spots, even on top of one another, making the plasters look like a skin disease. The bandaids constantly change the appearance of the sculpture, which is regularly photographed. The pictures are then put up next to the original photo.

This ‘bandaiding’ symbolizes the way in which people tackle problems. The visitor operates locally (i.e. in the exhibition hall), trying to solve a problem that is clearly beyond him. Is this type of solution typically human or is it extraterrestrial? The artist suggests that this approach must necessarily lead to superficial solutions.
