Might and Magnificence

At our exhibition "Might and Magnificence" at K19 I used the opportunity to point out a subject that made me think a lot recently. In my series "Sintflut" (engl. Flood) I am showing wales swimming in flooded castles. These images seem beautiful and impressive, they are pleasing for the eyes but the longer you look at them the more you understand the catastrophe I am depicting here. We live in luxury, even when our houses don't look like castles. And we don't think enough  about the consequences for environment and other living beings.
