series < schreibtisch.taten > . 2017 / 2018
the worksof this series (“white-collar crimes” or also “desk-based theory”) were created after 2017 and form an ensemble of 11 cross-referenced works . they are part of a series of sheets of letter.paper in din a4 format carrying on from older works where drawings are interspersed with poems.
the first two drawings ‘friedens.reich im frankenland & labil’ [kingdom of peace in franconia and at the same time unstable’ and LAUT.box’ [LOUD.box] have hand-written poems on the reverse which play on, or are conversations with, persons depicted on the front . the subsequent type.written sheets were further worked with white chalk and some with graphite . these can now be seen next to the drawings .
the other sheets arose as alternating drawings and texts, the rudimentary black figure on blue is made by tracing using carbon paper and the face then further elaborated in white pencil . the carbon paper allows the graphic & linguistic process to be replicated and corresponds at the same time with the drawing in black and red without text.
