Eckige Schnecke, 2012
Translucent fabric, hanging system, laser prints
The suspended translucent labyrinth shaped like a square spiral was inspired by drawings for Le Corbusier’s Musée à croissance illimitée (Museum of Unlimited Growth), which he intended to build in the Erlenbach countryside, near Aschaffenburg, Germany, in the1960s. The Neuer Kunstverein Aschaffenburg later adopted the abandoned project as part of its visual identity. Arriving at the centre of the work, the visitor finds a handout on the floor, printed with a poetic message inspired by an article from Der Spiegel magazine (no.12/1962) that traces the history of the project as Le Corbusier imagined it.
