Tropic Touch

Kunstverein Jesteburg

Tätowierungen nach Motivvorlage/Tattoos on skin according to motif template

In preparing the exhibition "Tropic Touch" I collected plants in the form of photographs. Members and friends of the Kunstverein Jesteburg are asked to portray their houseplants. A selection serves me as a template for drawings, some of which I edit digitally and extend typographically. Around a black tattoo bench, arranged on the walls of the small exhibition space, the drawing sheets transform into so-called "motif boards" or "Wanna-Do's". In a performative gesture, I offer these to the visitors* as templates for tattoos engraved by me.
