FROZEN

  • Academy of Fine Arts Münster, 2003
  • Wallpaper paste, two long opposite-facing glass facades à 600 x 300 cm forming a glass bridge

Wallpaper paste is applied to the upper edge of the 32 windows of an entirely glazed passageway between two buildings of the Academy of Fine Arts Münster. The viscous mass slowly flows down the glass, drying as it goes. After this the hardened paste looks like frozen water, and transforms the glazed bridge into bridge of ice. When light shines onto the “frozen” panes, shadows corresponding to the paste form on the floor and the transparent “ice” turns into shadow figures.
