Two artists explore the themes of street and public
space in very different ways. Reem Al Ghazzi presents a subtle portrait of an
elderly tailor who, following the arrest of his favorite son feels strongly
disappointed by life and by the general “cruelty of people”. As a consequence,
he has chosen to withdraw into a world of his own and keeps social interaction
to an absolute minimum.
In his practice, Daniel Segerberguses the street and
what he finds on it as basis for his work. He creates fragile
sculptures and installations out of discarded material and thus brings the
street with its roughness into his own subjective world and lends it a new
life. The work Ouroboros takes as its
references the ancient symbol of the snake that eats its own tail. Here it
presents a reflection on renewal, where each ending is simultaneously the
beginning of something new.
