Marion Möller

artist(s): Marion Möller
curator(s): Enrico Lunghi

Architectural ornamentation can be found in nearly all urban spaces. Although traditionally incorporated into the very fabric of architecture, ornaments are hardly noticed today. Marion Möller creates two-dimensional counterparts of ornamental shapes, which she has removed from their daily context, and hence, from the flow of time. A Small snapshot next to each form thus created refers back to the original place and context. The ornament's double existence - in the exhibition and in the public space - establishes a link between the two places. Through their presence, visitors connect both presences, and thus take an active part in the work.
