Thomas Ahn, Marcin Berdyszak, Leszek Knaflewski - installation, object, photography
25.10.2003 - 16.11.2003 / Kunsthalle Faust

Like roots are one of the inevitable elements in Leszek Knaflewski’s artwork, fruits are inevitable for Marcin Berdyszak and photographically captured windows in Thomas Ahn’s work. It is amazing which thematic versatility – with the aid of the respective artist – they undergo, which metamorphosis they experience to transsublime to a different form of reality.

A reality that is rather metaphysics than physics. The window in the work of Thomas Ahn does not attract as something singular but as the eye of architecture. In that the inside meets the outside, body meets space, the ego meets the world. As an artistic metaphor it becomes the locus of a transitional rite; the lucent border where time encounters eternity. (quotation: Michael Stoeber, catalogue Ahn)

Sometimes Leszek Knaflewski’s root crosses seem to be beyond time, too, especially when they are freed from any corporeality, are denuded to the backbone and becoming a metaphor for life and death, like in the opus “Das Paar”.

Finally Marcin Berdyszak’s bananas transmute to a seemingly uncontrolled flickering fauna, silver apples jumping in step to basses – a scenario that could not be more surreal but which nevertheless gives a premonition of one’s very own, nature influencing presence.
