white wax wall-installation - 2011

The wall-installation which extends over the two floors of the gallery space is composed of individual white wax plates. The single pieces are in the size of an Din-A-4 paper, and it almost appears to be a wall filled with empty pages. Empty pages which all could be filled with one's ideas and wishes. At a closer look one becomes aware of the wax, which has been used to hand-mold the wall pieces. Since the 16 Century wax was the favorite material for body and organ-model. The softness and the satin glance gives the impression of living skin. In this wall-installation Martin uses this material in it's essence form. The sunlight will warm up certain parts of the installation and the plates will form themselves in an very organic way.
