Felix: I’m concerned with who we are and how we move on this planet, what scales we are in and what they mean. Consequently, I’m interested in the interplay between space and us. I use a playful approach to such phenomena, such as inVertikale. It’s fascinating to me that the Earth's rotation gives rise to forces that we cannot see and that things attract one another without touching.
Anne: What I love about this piece in relation to architecture is that one is actually always going around and around of it because of the stairs. It's a bit as if there had always been a negative space there and one has had to ponder how to experience it.
The installation Vertikale is accompanied by the artist made zineHorizontalgespräch über Vertikalwirkung, Magnetismus, Industrierepräsentanz, den prosaischen Raum, Edelstahlminimalismus und Nachbarschaftsökonomien.
