Paper and Stele, The ANLAGE, wava.ar 2019-2022
Two Digital Sculptures as part of the show "The ANLAGE".
Inverted surface flipped inside out. A crumpled piece of paper holding a text by Czech philosopher Vilém Flusser – “Farewell to reality”. The two sculptures of Florian Adolph are made of specific and contrasting materiality: the sleek, reflective surface of Stele, and the scanned, reproduced edginess of Papier.
In the middle of the Gallus-Anlage, amongst the many physical outdoor artworks of the city of Frankfurt, the two sculptures offer a new interpretation of public art. A virtual monument which is at the same time grounded and fleeting, mundane and extravagant.
