The Rosshalde exhibition is named after the short story by Nobel laureate Hermann Hesse about everyday people, split between commitments to the family and longing for spiritual fulfilment, which can only be obtained outside the boundaries of a conventional society. The artist reveals her special relationship with Hesse’s thematization of multiplicity and the rejection of the idea of life as a developmental process leading up to our demise. Instead, she presents us with the realisation that all dualities reside within us, whether these are youth and old age, good and evil, defeat and victory. She adds that it is not solely about duality, but the multiplicity and attention paid to the different types of “us”, allowing each of them to creep out whenever they feel like it. Despite works of art being based on a stroll through a literary dimension, this in no way limits them. In fact, both areas coexist in harmony, and instead of reflecting geographical journeys or (literary) heroes and their stories, they open up a world of riddles, mysteries and reflections.
