Silke Rehberg - vanishing point
Museo Medioevale Cortile, Bologna
In the open court of the Museo Civico Medievale in Bologna, Silke Rehberg shows her three-part installation Vanishing Point, where she works with the contrast between two dimensional ornaments and full-plastic life-size horses.
The subject treated in Vanishing point is the relationship of painting and surface with sculpture and space, or rather with sculpture in space. This takes place through three-dimensional, realistic looking horse embodiments, which are actual portraits of existing horses. In contrast, the base ornament, a so called Penrose tessellation, an aperiodic tile design, functions as an alternative draft to the naturalistic portrayal.
Vanishing Point is a venture which aims at bringing the points of view of plastics and painting on one level.
