"Philosophical Chainreaction" Series (Detail), Collage, 2005
In the year 2004 an installation consisting of several parts had been developed for the exhibition „Thus did not speak Zarathustra“, which took place in the City Gallery Na Solianke in frame of the Moscow Art Biennial 2005. The title of the installation was „Thus did speak Friedrich Nietzsche“. One of these fragments was a collage showing the portrait of Nietzsche with a plaster on his mouth.
Following this exhibition, further plaster collages have been realized of personalities, who think and act in consequent asking and searching manners. Alongside Nietzsche there are Hannah Arendt, Platon, Wittgenstein, Simone de Beauvoir, Joseph Weizenbaum and others.
The title of this series of collages is „Philosophical Chainreaction“
