"stadtArt" project of Kunstverein Deggendorf:
When Kunstverein Deggendorf invited artists to its city art project in 2002, only various sands and thrown away items were allowed to be used.
For many years I've been trying to discover the last remaining relicts of Bavaria's oldest earth monuments.
For my two sand pictures of 2 x 2 meters I've chosen the same elliptical and circle forms of several temples or calendar buildings as they have been used in the region between the rivers Isar and Donau about 6000 years ago.
It is already very difficult to see the slight changes of colour in the fields in these days. Those earth monuments will be ploughed away and remain unrecognizable for future generations in just a few years.
My sand picture were therefore intended to be a sign of the destruction of these geometric forms, because even these artificial sand circles will vanish due to weather and passing people.
How much even changes of color in the ground can tell about life in the past is one of my most fascinating impressions till today.
